First time at CCSWG? New to CCS? Start here!

If this is your first time here, I'd like to welcome you.

If you're brand new to CCS, you should know:
Critical Code Studies is an emerging field of study exploring the extra-functional significance of computer source code. "Extra" does not mean outside of the function, but growing out from. Code is the means of a discussion, rather than the ends, the entry point into a discussion of technoculture. CCS is not so much an approach but a growing collection of methods and discourse.

To orient yourself, consider reading

If you're brand new to the Working Groups, you should know:
During this biennial event, we dig deep into code and coding culture with a diverse, interdisciplinary community of artists, practitioners, and scholars. The past two CCSWGs are available publicly. The previous ones were closed to participants only. However, you can read previous discussions from the first Working Group in electric book review, where this year's weekly discussion was held.

The challenge is to keep the focus on code, but of course, we discuss many aspects of the programs and their contexts. However, at this event we have an opportunity to tackle the hardest part of this interpretive and creative practice. We encourage you to start a Code Critique thread or to join in on someone else's. Remember, you don't need to know what you want out of that discussion when you post that. Our group has enough specialties, interests, and approaches to find interesting gems in it or interesting ideas to discuss related to it.

But let's use this thread for any questions you have about this emerging field!
