What's the Layerone Demo Party?
- Lighting talk describing the Layerone Demo Party:
- Demo Party: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demoparty
- Example Demos: https://www.youtube.com/user/Annikras- LayerOne is a security conference which focuses on a broad range of subjects such as networking, hardware, cryptography, and more. This year we are introducing a new event within the conference, the LayerOne Demoparty. The purpose of this event is to allow hardware and software enthusiasts to create demos and to show them off at the party. The attendees will be welcome to the outside courtyard where we will have couches and chairs set up around a projector and sound system. Attendees can enjoy adult beverages and watch the submitted demos. After all the demos have been presented, winners for the given categories will be announced.
What's the Layerone Demoscene Board?
A USB programmable board which allows you to write graphics & music demos and display them over a VGA monitor and audio jack. There are limited system resources and the goal is to write code and fit spectacular graphics effects with songs. You can write code in either ASM or C.
Want an example? Take a look at this done on an Atmel atmega88 (just to give you an idea): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNCqrylNY-0

Demos from LayerOne Demoparty 2016:
Default example code it comes with (draws rectangles as fast as possible):
Cool demos in the works by others:
Fun demo at the Hackaday birthday party (receives tweets over USB and displays them on screen)(loudish):
We've made it easy to start by providing a framebuffer for video and an 8-bit audio DAC for music. There is a forum and wiki available for support. (Thanks Davo!)

What's the point of this?
To give new comers to the demoscene and the Layerone Demoparty a chance to develop on a simple yet challenging platform. The goal was to build a low cost board capable of displaying a framebuffer on a monitor and to play audio over a simple DAC. It's now up to you to take this simple board and to create great graphical and musical chaos!
