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!


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