There's a new Australian demoparty in town, in the tradition of the old Flashback and Syntax. The first Switch On ever just took place in Queensland and some people attended and made things. "Very well, I hear you say, but what about the releases"? Look no further, we got them all.
See what we did there? Yeah, I know. HILARIOUS. Anyway, the files and results from this weekend's Decrunch event in Poland are in, so time to start digging through some releases :)
All the graphics are now viewable, and all the tracked music is playable right in the browser.
This past weekend, The Netherlands celebrated the demoscene in style at Outline - the longest running annual demoparty there. The results came out yesterday, but it is only today that we can enjoy the full gamut of files, as they were uploaded to scene.org and are now all fully available :)
We're back! The second Hackathon will take place on july 8th, 2017. Again, we hope as many as possible of our users will be able to come hang out in our Slack team (not there yet? Go to http://slack.demozoo.org/ and get signed up!), and collaborate on getting a lot of stuff done in the space of a single day!
The traditional sense of a "hackathon" involves coding, but we're using the term liberally - hacking on Demozoo can just as well involve tackling a task that involves data, visuals, or anything else. We'd like to accomodate our non-coding attendants as well, which in this case means creating a purpose-built page for different tasks that needs tackling. It will go live on the morning of the event, and we'll make sure that there is something for everyone to do, whether your field of interest is demos, graphics, music, tiny intros or anything else.
Having said that, we hope to close a good number of issues on our Github during the day as well :)
So, with that we will just say we hope to see as many as possible of your faces on Slack on july 8th. Let's get some stuff done!
