The Coding Lab started in the fall of 2019 at NYU’s ITP as a volunteer service, born out of a diverse community of students who love to share skills and help one another.
Now we employ 10 student workers each semester and host a Speaker Series where artists share about their work. We are currently fully remote and service over 150 student appointments per semester.
We love coding and helping others and are so happy to serve the NYU community!

Digital Gardening is a SUPER fun way to re-imagine reading, writing and thinking in our wacky world of WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION!
Digital gardening emphasizes growing little webs and NETWORKS of meaningful notes and ideas that get better over time!
Instead of taking notes and never looking at them again, Digital Gardens encourage revisiting and cultivating your ideas. How fun! In a world where we're constantly bombarded with streams of information, it can be really helpful to carve out a little garden of your own ideas! It's a really great way to retain what you learn in school as well as many other things.

Live coding embraces failure, transparency and... algorithms! In live coding we use mostly open-source, free tools. It is an on-the-fly performance practice that people use to generate sound and visuals.
This workshop covered installing & performing our first improv jam session with TidalCycles, which is a pattern-based live coding language for making music.
