openFrameworks is a crossplatform open source library for writing creative code in C++. It is designed to assist the creative process by wrapping commonly used functionality such as video playback, opengl graphics, audio i/o, image loading, in a powerful and friendly way. openFrameworks is currently on version 006 but is already being embraced by interactive and multimedia artists, researchers and universities, with several courses in openFrameworks currently being taught at leading art academies around the world. The main idea behind openFrameworks is that better tools lead to better work. In this presentation at KHM, Theodore Watson, one of the developers of openFrameworks, will expand on this idea and show how openFrameworks is structured, how it is being used and how it is helping in the creation of new and outstanding projects.
