Live Coding Meet-up

“Parsing Failure” 1st NL_CL meeting
(Nederland Coding Live)


The parse failure is a reply from the machine to let us know that it doesn’t understand us. It gives us access to the machine’s mind and usually gives hints on how to re-phrase our commands so that the machine can better understand what we are aiming for. Robert Henke [1] stated that “failures are great, pointing to the future”. Through failure we can learn, we get new ideas. You need to experiment and be ready to fail to develop new things and learn new skills.

During this livecoding meeting we want to help each other to overcome our fear of code, of the unknown, try things we never did before, fail together and parse our failures collectively. We will be coding within the real of music and visuals. No prior experience is a must, the only requirement is the motivation and readiness to code, even if it is your first time!

We want to explore other modes than the solo livecoder and mix methods from agile development with improvisation games.
We want to share and explore together: hands-on instead of show & tell.

Come and join us !

You can find us at STEIM, downstairs in studio 3.
