Creative Apps Community, Developing for your Art

A huge thanks to all who joined us at the Creative Apps Community last week to hear from our featured guests about developing software as part of the creative process.

Featured guests

Our guests were China Blue, Daniel Temkin, and Eric Corriel. The artists shared stories with us about what they make and how coding factors into their creative expression.

We heard about tapping into bio feedback data for audio and visual expression, authoring programming languages as art, and novel ways of visualizing the bits that make up the files we use every day.

Thank you to our three featured guests for your time and your stories!

Creative Tech Week

The International School of Photography's Hack the Photo hackathon

The Creative SDK team is pleased to announce that we will be taking part in the International Center of Photography’s Hack the Photo hackathon this weekend in NYC.

Hack the Photo takes an interesting approach to hackathons in bringing together software developers and content creators to explore new ways to tell stories:

ICP has a long tradition of engaged photography in telling the most important stories since it was founded in 1974 by Cornell Capa. The New Media Narratives Program continues this tradition in welcoming creative visual storytellers from many disciplines and artistic practices.

#hackthephoto is a weekend interdisciplinary opportunity for photographers, filmmakers, developers, designers, makers, journalists and visual artists to come together and collaborate on the future of storytelling.

We’ll be there to give the participants an overview of Creative SDK features, like the Image Editor UI component and Creative Cloud Files API, and to support them as they hack into new explorations in storytelling. If you’re around, come say hi!

Learn more and get event details on Hack the Photo‘s website. Thanks to the International Center of Photography for having us!

Try the Creative SDK yourself on iOS, Android, or Web by heading over to our developer portal.

Wrap-up: The Creative Apps Community NYC, 3D Workflows

Posted on Wednesday, March 30th, 2016 by Ash Ryan
Category: Events

Creative Apps Community NYC

Last week, we hosted our third event for The Creative Apps Community NYC. Our theme for the month was 3D Workflows.

Our featured guests were Sophia Georgiou from Morphi, and the crew from FabFoundry’s Monozukuri Saturdays: Nobu Seki, Saki Hayashi, Luke Schantz.

At the event, we learned about how simple it is to create 3D objects on mobile devices, thanks to apps like Morphi. We discussed points to consider when designing an object to be 3D printed, including when you need supports to prevent your object from collapsing in the printer.

Then we talked in depth about how to move 3D object data from, say, a tablet and then print it on a 3D printer. We looked at a few examples of filaments, and heard about the use cases for each. We also talked about maker spaces and other resources for doing and learning in NYC.

A huge thanks to our featured guests, who were incredibly giving with their knowledge and experience, and to all who came out to learn and socialize!


We’re already starting to plan our next event in NYC for the end of April. We hope you’ll come out and join our budding community of creativity app developers.

Join our group on Meetup or on Peatix for the date announcement!

We’re excited to announce that we’re sponsoring Droidcon SF. Make sure to stop by and talk to our team at our booth on the exhibition floor or during our CodeLab presentation at 11am on Thursday.

In our CodeLab session, we’ll be walking through how you can to integrate the Creative SDK’s Image Editor UI component to quickly and easily build powerful image editing into your Android app. We’ll also be talking about how you can continue on to save images from your app to the Creative Cloud with the Creative Cloud Files API, and let your users send their photos directly to Photoshop on the desktop with the Send To Desktop API.

Make sure to add us to your schedule on the Droidcon SF 2016 android app! Here’s the link to download the app.

We’ll also be hosting our first Creative Apps Community SF meetup in conjunction with Droidcon on Wednesday, March 16th at Rackspace’s Geekdom. Doors will open at 6:30pm and we’ll get started at 7:00! Join us here.
