Code Poetry Slam Vienna 2016 Programmierer und Poetinnen! Programmiererinnen und Poeten! Wir präsentieren euch: den Vienna Code Poetry Slam 2016 am 25. Mai 2016 um 19:30 Uhr im Festsaal der TU Wien. Wir freuen uns über eure Einsendungen bis zum 8. Für Interessierte wird nach Möglichkeit ein Workshop organisiert, um gemeinsam das Medium Code Poetry zu erkunden. Die Veranstaltung ist eine Kooperation der Fachschaft Informatik an der TU Wien mit dem Verein Literaturkreis Podium. Gesponsert von: Code Poetry ist in erster Linie, was ihr daraus macht: Von Gedichten, die in Pseudoprogrammiersprachen verfasst sind, bis zu Oden in C++, von Spoken Word Texten in Maschinensprache bis hin zu ausführbaren Shell Scripts, die euren Laptop in W.B. Wir würden uns über ästhetische ansprechende Texte freuen, die im besten Fall sogar noch ausführbar sind ― Zeilen, die für Menschen und Computern gleichermaßen lesbar sind. Hier zwei Beispiele für Code Poetry aus dem Finale des Stanford Code Poetry Slams: Einige Links zu Code Poetry:

Perl Poetry (Programming Perl) The forgery in the attendant sidebar appeared on Usenet on April Fool's Day, 1990. It is presented here without comment, merely to show how disgusting the metaphors of a typical programming language really are. So much for anything resembling literary value. Larry is particularly relieved that "Black Perl", originally written for Perl 3, no longer parses under Perl 5. Larry's, er, corpus has fortunately been overshadowed by that of the reigning Perl Poet, Sharon Hopkins. #! Copyright © 2001 O'Reilly & Associates.

Source Code Poetry 2015 Code Poetry Slam Code Poetry means different things depending on who you ask. For a start, it can mean poems, written in a programming language, that are meant to be read purely as words on a page (see Code{Poems}); code that aims for elegant expression within severe constraints, like a haiku or a sonnet (see 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 or ChucKus), or code that generates automatic poetry (see OuLiPo for poetic background, or google for online examples- there are hundreds). Some definitions are directly at odds with each other. Obfuscated code (see the chapter on Obfuscated Code in Software Studies: a lexicon) brings attention to language by being creatively obtuse, whereas articles by Ward, Hoffmann, and Stewart talk about how code is poetic because it's so elegant and compact. With this series, we're particularly interested in code that is beautiful to read and simultaneously executable, in line with Ian Bogost's idea in Alien Phenomenology that creative projects should *do* something. #!
