Workshop We are going to cover: Graphical programming concepts Pure Data introduction Basic computer graphics
Pure Data Pure Data (Pd) is a free real-time graphical programming environment for audio, video, and graphical processing. It is the third major branch of the family of patch based programming languages known as Max (Max/FTS, ISPW Max, Max/MSP, jMax, etc.) originally developed by Miller Puckette and company at IRCAM. The core of Pd is written and maintained by Miller Puckette and includes the work of many developers, making the whole package very much a community effort.
