I'm happy to announce the third Luz Code Sprint, happening this Thursday the 18th, 5-9pm at CubeSpace.

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!!)

This event is open to EVERYONE, from coders to artists to musicians, everyone's input and contributions will be super useful.

I'm especially eager to see:

  • 2d sketch artists
  • OpenGL enthusiasts
  • Cairo enthusiasts

So please don't hesitate to invite your friends! :)

I'll bring all my gear for people to play with: a wacom tablet, a console with gobs of dials and knobs, a gamepad, and hopefully we'll be able to hook up to the projector.

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