News / Openframeworks Workshop November 29, December 2-3, 2011
Explore the potential of this open source toolkit!
Openframeworks is an open source toolkit designed to support the creative process by providing a simple and intuitive framework for experimentation. Wrangling software libraries and building project files saps the creative juices. OF wraps up a number of popular and useful libraries into a single C++ environment for working with graphics, images, audio, video, and computer vision in the realm of interactive art, design, and data visualization.
- Tired of building C++ projects from scratch? Simply copy a template or example and hack away.
- Need some way to work with physics, networking, databases, serial devices or other equipment?
- Want to deploy an application on multiple platforms? OF currently supports Win, Mac, Linux, iOS, and (soon) Android.
Simply put, don't waste time reinventing the wheel when you can hit the ground spinning! For more information, see http://www.openframeworks.cc/.
