Daniel Sauter on Creative Coding for Mobile Devices: Build Sensor-Based Android Apps using Processing
This workshop is an introduction to Processing for Android, and specifically the creative potential of the hardware features built into Android devices shipped today.
We’ll create a series of Android projects in Processing using motion and position sensors, the touch screen panel, geolocation and compass, front and back cameras, WiFi networking, databases, 3D scenes, and explore peer-to-peer networking using Bluetooth where we also connect to the Arduino.
The workshop will utilize Processing 2.0b, Android SDK, and the Ketai Library for Processing. A basic understanding of programming and access to an Android device are recommended.
Daniel Sauter is an artist who creates interactive installations and site-specific interventions dealing with the cultural and social implications of emerging technologies. He is an Associate Professor of New Media Arts at the University of Illinois at Chicago, School of Art and Design, organizer of the Mobile Processing Conference in Chicago, and author of Rapid Android Development: Build Rich, Sensor-Based Applications with Processing (Pragmatic, 2012).
Participants should bring their laptops and Android devices and should have Processing and Android preinstalled and working as there won’t be time during the workshop to configure and trouble shoot.
A good place to start is here: http://processing.org/learning/android/
Also, an ITP Resident will be available ONE HOUR PRIOR to the start of the workshop to assist anyone who needs help getting the required configuration working on their device — please take avantage of this opportunity if you think you need it — the workshop will move quickly and there simply won’t be time to stop to help those those who don’t come fully prepared.
RSVP required to firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to space issues, this event is only open to current ITP students and alumni on a space available basis.
