Workshop at Hyper Island 2016

For the Interactive Art Director class at Hyper Island in Stockholm / Sweden we gave a one day workshop on upcoming web-technologies and our visual programming editor cables.
The participants first got an overview of inspiring projects using WebGL for interactive realtime graphics in the browser, virtual reality using WebVR, as well as Web Audio for sound synthesis and analysis.
We then introduced the students to cables – they learned how to work with shapes, images, animations, sound and video and how they can integrate their creations into their own portfolios.
We also introduced MQTT – a messaging protocol to communicate between different devices. Using the MQTT broker shiftr.io they learned how to control their Arduino microcontrollers from within cables using a messaging bridge build in Processing.
