In this presentation I'll be discussing my experiences over the last few years.
From setting up a creative business centred around Open Source to the the things and people that have inspired me along the way.
I'll be going through previous projects with other agencies and brands, as well as our educational and charity based work. I'll be talking about openFrameworks, as well as why I believe that everyone should learn how to program.
