DescriptionHow the demoscene has progressed into the web browser

What are the tricks, algorithms and optical illusions that make 8-bit (C64) demos "tick"? This talk covers, among others, fake zooming / texture-mapping, 2D zoetropes & cyclers, XOR filling and Bresenham decision trees, and how to dissect a more complicated effect into the individual building blocks.

What is the demoscene? - From cracks to glitches to the pushing the GPU - how a subculture became the purest convergence of art and science.
