How to Make A Puppet Show the Open Source Way - Jared & JR Neilsen, The Hello World Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Hello World Program is an educational puppet show for kids of all ages that teaches programming, puppetry, and digital media with specific focus on Linux, Python, & HTML5. Our goal is to inspire youth to make their own media the open source way. We do this by using free, open source software and providing tutorials on everything from puppet fabrication to video editing. We will discuss the challenge of writing educational yet entertaining scripts; the joys and pitfalls of using FLOSS; and our range of inspiration, from Groucho to Linus. The Hello World Program is our effort to engage and introduce children to Linux, programming, and computer science. Educators and free software proponents as well as youth can expect an entertaining overview of our show and the methods and means of its creation. No technical expertise required. We most recently presented at Maker Faire Bay Area.
