Prototyping Interaction with Spacebrew
This workshop will introduce Spacebrew from a technical perspective and explore ways to prototype interactive installations with Spacebrew. On the technical side, we will cover: a high-level introduction to Spacebrew; an overview of how to connect to Spacebrew with Processing and Javascript; and demonstrations on how to use Spacebrew to connect all of the above together.

Participants will be guided through a set of live-coding scenarios, showing how to setup Spacebrew, and how to create apps from scratch. Time pending, we will be prepared to demonstrate a range of examples and projects, including connecting Spacebrew to an off-the-shelf outlet, to an Arduino-powered LED bar, and to mobile devices.
