What is the demoscene?
The demoscene is a electronic art subculture that specializes in producing demos, which are audio-visual presentations that run in real-time on a computer. The main purpose of a demo is to show off the combined effort of programming, graphical artistic and musical skills.
There are over a hundred demoscene events arranged all over the world every year, featuring competitions in which individuals or groups of individuals compete by trying to make the most visually or technologically impressive production.

We've had speakers from over a dozen countries including Finland, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Norway, Poland and of course the US.
