Centre for Possible Studies: 21 Gloucester Place, London W1U 8HR (OUR NEW LOCATION!) 

Free, please book!

As part of their residency with the Serpentine Gallery, CAMP will be holding a two day workshop following the launch of http://edgwareroad.org earlier this year.  The workshop will be led by Sanjay Bhangar, exploring emerging web technologies often clubbed under the umbrella term “HTML5” and what this could mean for independent practitioners, developers, technologists, and what the current flame wars around web standards imply for the future. The workshop includes a demo and code overview ofhttp://edgwareroad.org, an in-browser tool to rapidly create print objects from shared archives, and video tools related to http://pad.ma, an HTML5-based text-annotated video archive.

The workshop is aimed toward people with some familiarity with the web and standards processes, but is also open to anyone with an interest in online video, print design, open content and software, and independence in general!

Following the first session on Wednesday, day two is an open ‘hack-day’ to explore questions and ideas raised in day one.

Please note: The Centre for Possible Studies has now moved to a new location… I will post pictures up soon!
