- Introduction to Livecoding
- Overview of the various JS technologies used to build the livecoding platform
Livecoding is the art of coding on the fly and improvisation to create content - usually visualizations and audio. There are a number of livecoding platforms. Pure Data and Max/MSP are among the well known visual livecoding environments. Among the textual ones, SuperCollider and ChucK use a custom language. Others like Impromptu, Fluxus and Overtone use a variant of Scheme. The one thing that's common to them is that they're all desktop applications. Quality livecoding has remained in the domain of desktop applications for a long time.
Sit back, relax and chill out. You can go over the presentation and try out code samples later.
