What if we could program the building we are living with? Join us at the Scratch2017BDX conference to program your own coloured animation and run it live on a building facade.
Monday, July, 17th, 22:00 to Midnight
The Snap programming interface should look as is:
Once the project is loaded into your web browser, you will see a display window, 4 special blocks dedicated to Arbalet Frontage in the Motion category (switch on and switch off pixels to a specific or random color) as well as three sprites:
The display window contains a simulation, a nickname in the form of animal or fruit names that identifies you among other clients, and it tells if you are running your program live or in simulation. The simulation shows 71 pixels: 4 rows of 19 columns minus 5. The 5 missing lights are the doors of the building, we can't display anything there. Your nickname will only pop up once you press RUN and you successfully connect to the frontage. You can train programming at home, in that case you will not get a nickname.
You can start creating your animations from home so that you can test live quicker.

Here are a bunch of ideas to create your own program. Start with something simple, you can then improve it step by step.
