Creative Tech Week
This month, the Creative Apps Community meetup celebrates the beginning of Creative Tech Week.
In partnership with NYC EDC, Creative Tech Week is creating a city-wide 10-day festival that will showcase the intersection of creativity and technology, with a combination of free events for consumers and 350+ ticketed events for professionals, entrepreneurs, developers and creatives.
Spanning 10 days and 5 boroughs, Creative Tech Week will feature cutting edge virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), data visualization, generative algorithms, 3D printing, experimental/interactive advertising and creative computer programming.
Featured Guests at the Creative Apps Community

Daniel Temkin makes images, programming languages, and interactive pieces that explore systems of logic and language. His esoteric.codes blog, an exploration of programming languages as art, was awarded the Creative Capital / Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. He has presented at conferences such as SXSW, SIGGRAPH, CAA, and Media Art Histories, and his work has been a critic’s pick for Art News, the New York Times, and the Boston Globe.
