Tech Talk: Introduction to Max/MSP (Paul Anderson)

MaxMSP

Join Hackforge on Thursday, August 21st for our next Tech Talk: Introduction to Max/MSP presented by Paul Anderson. The Tech Talk begins at 6PM at Hackforge, located in the front of the Windsor Public Library (850 Ouellette Ave).

Max/MSP is a function-block programming system used by many artists and hobbyists. While simple and easily managed even by those very new to programming, it is capable of very complex behaviour. Spend an evening with Hackforge regular Paul Anderson as he walks us through the basics of this fascinating software.

Paul Anderson is Hackforge’s resident polymath and facilities manager. He rarely finds a hobby he doesn’t like.

Hackforge Summer Event: 3D Printing

 

3d printing

This Saturday, July 19th experience the power of 3D printing! Hackforge will be at Fontainebleau Library (3030 Rivard Avenue) for an afternoon of demonstrations. We will have a 3D printer on display so you can watch it create something from almost nothing. You can learn how to use a 3D printer to create toys, art, practical items, gifts, and much more.

Kids and their families can stop by between 1-4PM on Saturday and see the machine at work, ask questions to Hackforge volunteers, and interact with 3D creations. This activity is most suited for ages 8-18. No registration required.

Come see how you can bring items from your imagination to life with 3D printing this Saturday! This free event is part of Windsor Public Library’s summer Eureka programming.
