Special Guest Jonah Dempcy (Part 2)
The second part of our in depth interview with Jonah Dempcy. We put him to the test by asking him to make musical analogies for common programming ideas and continue further down the rabbit hole. Intro music is Double the Daily Dose by Jonah’s project, Revolution Void. Check them out on Spotify!

Special Guest Jonah Dempcy (Part 1)
Join us for a wild ride a we speak with musician and programmer Jonah Dempcy. We discuss everything from the proto-internet days, to the demoscene to Dwarf Fortress and talk about how to channel your musicality into 1s and 0s. This is part 1 of a 2 part interview. Check back soon for the rest!

Buckets of Variables and Variable Buckets
In this episode, our cohosts discuss variables and how they apply to the Finnish bucket culture. They also talk about why analogies eventually fall apart when relating to computer science. Links of interest: Dark Synth is the the crazy synthesizer with 2048 independent sin wav oscillators.

Setup and Draw and Make Noise and Listen
In this latest episode, our co-hosts take a look at the Sound library in Processing as they attempt to translate the basic elements of visual drawing into sound. Show Notes Here’s a great blog post about Karlheinz Stockhausen’s early electronic pieces, including the visual score for Studie I. Here’s our GitHub repository where you can find the code we’re working on in the podcast.

Setup and Draw
In the second episode, Shane and James start getting into the language and syntax of processing. They dive into the basic Setup and Draw functions and why you might want to use them. They also delve further into the mystery of Zoog. Where did this creature come from? Is Zoog benevolent or is Zoog here to destroy us? Most importantly, what’s the plural of Zoog? Zeeg?!?

Introduction to Learning Processing
In the premier episode, co-hosts Shane and James talk about how they got into code and music. They also discuss common hangups and misconceptions around learning to code and math. Other topics explored are the ethics of data science, how the congress in the USA needs some serious code lessons, and how to use math to get an intentionally poor grade in math. Throughout the show and the series they will be referring to and remixing ideas in Learning Processing, a book by Dan Shiffman. The language and the book is targeted towards visual artists and explores how to quickly understand typically complex and misunderstood topics in Computer Science for anyone that has a desire to learn more.
