Talk: Generating Art in Many Worlds
Dan Lidral-Porter's talk at Clojure/West is about computer-generated art in Clojure.
Dan's talk is about his solution for creating interesting art while live coding. Since there's a huge space to explore, you don't want to make your audience watch all the boring parts of the exploration. His solution is to be able to see the art ahead of the audience so they don't have to see it unless you've discovered it's interesting.
Check out some of his generated art. He's also the creator of this very cool ClojureScript + Om + Zelkova app for exploring Magic: The Gathering decks.
