Demoscene – The Art of Coding!


Wait, what’s the Demoscene? It’s about demonstrating talent and skills of coders and capabilities of computing machinery. Demosceners produce Demos, digital audio-visual works rendered real-time by computer programs. Sceners strive for entering their programmed productions in a competition – a Compo – at a Demoparty. Self-limitation fuels creativity: Contributed programs compete in categories, with e.g. file size limits (size coding), hardware restrictions or historic computers (Commodore C64, Amiga, Atari ST, etc.). Demos are released live at these events, where they are celebrated and voted on by all visitors. The Demoscene is an internationally active digital subculture, rooted in the home computer revolution in the 1980s but vibrant to this day. Sceners are strongly attached to their Demoscene, there is a tremendous amount of identity, history, emotion, and community. No wonder it is recognized by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage of mankind in Finland, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, and Switzerland! This was achieved by the international collaborative initiative The Art of Coding, which is presented at cyberevolution by the Swiss Demoscene association Echtzeit – Digitale Kultur.
