Intermediate openFrameworks

Have you been working with Processing or ActionScript, but need more performance to realize your interactive project? Are you a JavaScript hacker who’d like to add c++ to her arsenal of skills? If so, it’s probably time to make the jump to openFrameworks, an open source c++ toolkit for creative coding. OpenFrameworks is not only a very powerful tool for creative coding, but a great way to enter the sometimes daunting world of c++. For just a few examples of the type of things that are possible with openFrameworks, check out the oF gallery here.

This 6-week intensive workshop is for coders who are already familiar with object oriented programming concepts, but would like to dive into openFrameworks. We will cover topics such as interfacing with web services, intermediate-level oF/openGL classes, common computer vision techniques, and working with addons.
