 +> It can be easy to get the impression that computer programming is all about "logic" and "efficiency" and "problem solving." Well you know what? Sometimes computer science is more art than science, Morty; a lot of people don't get that!
 +> At this week's ACM presentation, Jesse Maes will be showing us the basics of procedural art generation! Expect a Bob Ross style live demo, showcasing a few classic algorithms for creating pieces of visual art. Landscapes, paintings, trees, fractals... shapes! You name it! There's a ton of potential in programming for creativity and self expression - come see what you can do to a canvas with just few lines of code.
