Recreational Computer Programming Group
Jan 16, 2013 — The first meeting of the Houston Recreational Computer Programming Group was held this past Sunday, Jan 13, 2013 at TX/RX Labs.
This is a group which I instigated to try to get more recreational computer programming and creative coding related things going; the sorts of things that are in the spirit of the old “Computer Recreations” column which used to appear in Scientific American magazine.
At this first meeting, I presented some examples I had created in the Processing language to render various Guilloche patterns. Another member of TX/RX Labs gave a presentation about the Golden Rectangle and some related animated fractals rendered using only CSS. The aim is to hold these meeting on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 1:30pm at TX/RX Labs. That means the next one is February 10, 2013.
The agenda for the next meeting is not yet set, but I’m sure we’ll have some people come up with some cool stuff to present. If you’re in Houston, TX, and recreational computer program or creative coding sounds like your kind of thing, get your ass down to TX/RX labs for the next meeting.
