To code is to write a precise set of instructions or rules. Sure, these are usually then interpreted by a computer but they could also be interpreted by a human performing actions. Or perhaps applied to a series of physical objects. As educators seek new and alternative ways to teach coding to younger audiences and/or those that don’t have access to a computer, computerless coding is a growing field both relevant to live coding and the broader programming community.
Furthermore, when we think of live coding without a computer, we need to consider alternative interfaces for the code input and/or output. These interfaces may allow for greater embodiment or hybrid approaches to live coding. From theater, to wearables, to audience interpreters and reappropriation of other interfaces or instruments, this session invites you to share your ideas and hear about computerless coding in all its forms.
