Luz, the Ruby Music Visualizer, Code Sprint
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

Luz is a Ruby music visualization playground, aiming to create a simple, beautiful GUI for artists, and simple, beautiful code for us! (I heart Ruby!!)

We are holding the first-ever Luz code sprint:

  • Saturday, Sep 6th, 10am to 6pm at CubeSpace

(we had talked about doing it on sunday, but no: it's saturday)

This event is open to EVERYONE. Even if you don't know Ruby yet, there are plenty of ways to join in, from writing/improving the English descriptions for the 150+ existing plugins, to thinking of new plugins, or even just playing with Luz! :)

I'll bring all my gear for people to use: a wacom tablet, midi controller with gobs of dials and knobs, a gamepad, and we'll hook up to the projector.

Join us this Saturday! I really hope to see you there!

-Ian

p.s. if you want to try out Luz ahead of time, it's super easy:

1) sudo apt-get install bzr ruby1.8 libgtk2-ruby libglade2-ruby libgtkglext1-ruby librmagick-ruby1.8 libcairo-ruby libsdl-ruby1.8 2) bzr branch https://code.launchpad.net/~ian-mcintosh/luz/trunk luz 3) ./luz_editor.rb

Ubuntu 11.10 Release Party
Backspace

I'm proud to announce Ubuntu Oregon's 11.10 Release Party will take place on October 22nd, 2011 at Backspace, 115 NW 5th Ave, Portland, Oregon. Although this will not be a catered event there will be plenty of food and beverage options for those who bring money. Backspace makes everything from Nachos to Hummus and has a wide variety of local non-alcoholic beverages. Additionally next door there is a very decent burger shop that sells domestic and micro brews and there is Chinese food and other options in close proximity.

It is pretty likely that we may break off into a group after the release party to grab a cocktail for those who are interested and during the event we will have access to free wifi and power!

I would like to take a quick second and thank Eucalyptus for sponsoring some custom Ubuntu Oregon Oneiric T-Shirts... We should have close to enough for everyone who attends but just in case I will say they are going to be given out on a first come first serve basis!

Feel free to bring a friend or relative and please RSVP at http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-us-or/1335/detail/ (You can RSVP last minute if need be) I'm hoping some of the local Canonical people will be able to attend and I'm going to ping them with this announcement so we shall see!
