The workshop will focus on the rapid prototyping using beginner friendly K12 library uniquely designed for Pd-L2Ork and opportunities for seamless transition from K12 into regular Pd-L2Ork environment. In addition, the workshop will focus on the Pd-L2Ork’s unique affordances, and its utilization in rapidly developing Raspberry Pi-enabled musical instruments and robotics scenarios. Participants will be encouraged to obtain Raspberry Pi kits on their own or purchase one at the workshop.
Introduced in 2010, Pd-L2Ork is a custom fork of Pure-Data with over 1,700 patches and improvements. It maintains backwards compatibility, while also offering an array of new features, including acclerated SVG-enabled canvas, infinite undo, system-wide abstraction-aware presets, advanced patching, usability improvements, and a collection of new objects. Pd-L2Ork also offers the most advanced library for Wiimote connectivity. Pd-L2Ork has been utilized in dozens of Maker-like workshops for various age-groups. For additional info visit pd.l2ork.org.
A detailed optional list of Raspberry Pi accessories and optional kit pricing will be provided for attendees.
