codeMeetUp() today is about Batik Fraktal! Dimas Yusuf Danurwenda share the process of making batik traditionally and with technology. Batik Fraktal develops a software to create batik patterns, named jBatik. The company name is Piksel Indonesia, which two of the founders are also the initiator of BCCF.
Pak Budi Rahardjo deliberately wears one of Batik Fraktal products, which is the uniform of his company: Indocisc. Dimas explains how the batik pattern is carefully calculated and created, that there is also a deep philosophy behind the design
This is one of the plate used to create batik patterns:
And this is the explanation about L-system, a language to describe and generate fractal
jBatik software helps the user to create their own patterns using fractal formulas. The possibility is endless, this is superbly awesome!!! 🙂
And this is us, with some friends from Kampoong Monster, and some textile designers.
codeMeetUp() next week will be about Animation Programming, by Kampoong Monster! ❤
On January 12th 2015, President Jokowi visited Bandung Creative City Forum (BCCF) and personally entered our class to see ProCodeCG do some coding to create interesting games.
This is the kids preparing their codes before the President arrived:
We told the president that ProCodeCG prepares and educates kids to code and create things, so that they can learn information technology earlier, and will be ready to defend and protect Indonesia as the nation’s digital army 🙂
Fiki Satari, Chairman of BCCF explains about ProCodeCG to Mr. President:
The kids gave their salutation to Mr. President, they were so excited and proud to meet the President in person! 😀
We also explained about ProCodeCG programs on educating kids and early code literacy to some ministerial staff and also to Pangdam Siliwangi
And took pics with Pangdam Siliwangi and Kapolda Jabar too 🙂
In his very brief speech Mr. President expressed his full support to creative industries and youth creativity. He was impressed with Bandung’s grand potentials in varies communities and hopes that we can maintain and improve the awesomeness of Bandung.
ProCodeCG collaborating with Bandung Creative City Forum (BCCF) and Simpul Institute will keep doing this effort in educating young minds of Indonesia in creativity and computer technology skills especially programming so that we can contribute more to this country.
And to Mr. President, see you next time. 🙂
