The New York City Patching Circle is an free monthly meeting open to all for anyone who is interested in media programming. We mostly use Pd and Max/MSP, but all are welcome.
We spend enough time alone staring at our computers; we are proposing to work together. So often issues that arise when working can be solved with a quick two minute discussion that would take hours to solve alone. We have Dorkbot to see people's work, we have Share where anyone can play, we have workshops and universities to learn from. This is a meeting where we all can come to work.
This is an informal gathering of patching and patchers (Pd, Max/MSP/ Jitter, and even vvvv, Eyesweb, Labview, etc.). Beginners and Experienced welcome. Open to everyone, students, the public, etc. Work on personal projects, professional projects, school projects, ask for help, help others, or just patch quietly to yourself, in a room full of other people patching patches and helping other people patch.
There is now an announce list just for the NYC Patching Circle, subscribe to get the monthly announcement:
