Turtlestitchis a Snap-derived environment for creating artwork for embroidering on a machine. It has been a powerful motivator to all kinds of people to engage in programming. Founded by keynote speaker Andrea Mayr Stalder, it has been an exciting innovation to link Turtle geometry to the capabilities of embroidery machines and bring craft and coding together. With many presentations and workshops at computing conferences over the last few years, an enthusiastic following has been created across many countries and continents. An international group of Turtlestitch enthusiasts meets once a month to share developments, expertise and excitement. Participants discuss achievements, pedagogy, craft, technical issues, embroidery machines and look for mutual support. This has led to web sites, blogs and the development of a knowledge sharing web site to help disseminate discoveries and expertise. This BOF session would be our monthly meeting, but with an invitation to others new to Turtlestitch to join us!

The Secrets & Surprises in Coding Spirals:
TurtleStitch Tur-torial

Cynthia Solomon, Sarah Magner,

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!

Grand Gestures
Storytelling with AI

Jens Mönig, Jadga Hügle

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!

We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...


Codification (Transformation) of GUI Elements and database structures from SNAP to Python
From blocks language to typing language by SNAP Code conversion

Matthias Kim

Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...
