From O To C. “Make believe” sounds better than “simulation”.

A computer-less introduction to Computer Science aiming at making you curious enough about machines that you’ll want to talk to.

“From 0 to C” is a framework of objects, methods, stories and games to teach the basics of computer science and programming. It is the outcome of several years spent teaching code and basic electronics to design students and curious makers, pushed by a curiosity that has been accompanying Ubi since he was a child.

This framework does not aim at making one an awesome programmer, as that more often comes with experience and time, but it may ease the process of pushing through the entrance barrier via means of physical interaction with tangible objects. It leverages on the “learn by discovery” principle, in which collaboration between participants (both students and tutors) may favour the learning process by slowly discovering how to create a fictional computer.

Where:
Copenhagen Institute Of Interaction Design ApS
37 Toldbodgade
1253 Copenhagen
Denmark

When: 5-6pm – Weds, March 18th, 2015.

Bio
Ubi de Feo worked as a Creative Technologist for Wieden+Kenney. He supervised and/or developed projects for Nike, Nokia, GoreTEX, Heineken, Bottega Veneta, Mandarina Duck, Electronic Arts, MTV and many more. He currently teaches programming, electronics and other things to whomever wants to learn, often developing his own methods to explain really complicated things in a more tangible, down-to-earth fashion. He does do not try to teach things he doesn’t thoroughly understand, which often leads him to learn entirely new subjects in order to explain them to himself and others.

In his off-time (mostly when doing the dishes) he thinks about ways to improve things or invent new ones. He began experimenting with mobile devices in 2001, and internet connected objects in 2007. Ubi loves talking about the future.
