Students can take the workshops individually if they're already a bit familiar with the Pi, or can't make all three sessions.

 

Session 3: Advanced Networking Applications

Finally, we'll try to pull it all together by building an internet-connected application. The specific project will be chosen based on class interest, but could include a script that reads twitter and produces an motorized notification when certain terms come up, or an electronic mail flag that tells you when you have e-mail.

Sound Art in Pure Data


In our second Pure Data workshop, we'll apply what we picked up in the first session to sound: recording it, playing it back and making it do strange and unpredictable things. We'll explore effects like delays and distortion, we'll speed sound up, slow it down and make it go backwards, and we'll think about it musically, building a basic sequencer.
