Introduction to Live (Visual) Coding with Cyril:
The aim of the workshop is to introduce Cyril software, created 3 years ago, to allow the creation of fast visual prototypes and live coding performances. The focus is to understand the functioning of the
software, to learn its language, as well as practices for visual performance.
The practice of live coding, or live programming, has become increasingly common in recent years. The
programmer, who in other historical moments hid inside the Matrix, now stands as the performer and
composer of an algorithmic-based visual piece.
