Beaufort Digital Corridor on 843TV

The Beaufort Digital Corridor will be doing a series of talks with WHHI-TV's 843TV in the coming months. We are pleased to announce the first episode featuring Executive Director Shelley Barratt; resident Wave Sciences' Keith McElveen, and entrepreneurs in residence Life Launcher represented by Alex Krauss. WATCH HERE.

We invite you to learn more about different aspects of our tech ecosystem. Enjoy the journey- we certainly are!

Wave Sciences Announces Two Patents

The US Patent and Trademark Office has informed Wave that it is issuing two patents for its novel, mechanical approach to helping smart speakers hear better in noisy conditions. The invention drew inspiration from the acoustic mirrors carved into England's White Cliffs of Dover during the early days of World War II. Microphones were placed on a shelf below the acoustic mirrors, which were half-parabolas, to hear approaching German bombers from across the English Channel and sound the alarm. Warping the half-parabola shape of the Cliffs into a ring and then engineering the curvature and other dimensions appropriately to focus sound on a ring-shaped array of microphones led to a structure that helps popular smart speakers (you know the ones) work better in noise and from further away. And they also help the speakers sound better too!

Fall at BASEcamp Gallery: Emily Scott Pack

Beaufort Digital Corridor is pleased to present two unique angles of one artist's vision for the BASEcamp Gallery Fall installation.

Emily Scott Pack's dual exhibit will include her encaustic works of art and paintings comprised of coastal-inspired abstracts, landscapes, and low country life. The other side of that will be The RAW Project, a series of black and white photos of Real Authentic Women- encouraging and empowering women "to see themselves as the vulnerable, beautiful, and authentic humans they are."

The exhibit will display throughout October, November, and December. Plan to meet Emily and enjoy a glass of wine and some light snacks as part of Beaufort's Fall Art Walk on October 26th from 5-8pm at BASEcamp - 500 Carteret Street, halfway between USCB Center for the Arts/Sea Islands Center Gallery and the downtown galleries. Art is for sale direct through artist.

Digital Corridor Executive Director Shelley Barratt says of the exhibit, "Aesthetically it is nice to have more than one type of media being displayed- that's why we typically bring in several artists at a time. With Emily's display, her two worlds meet and flow nicely within BASEcamp's sparse and light interior."

CODEcamp Beaufort Fall 2019

The Beaufort Digital Corridor announces the Fall 2019 class of CODEcamp – Introduction to Web Development, its final offering of the year. Registration is open now for this limited seating opportunity.

The eight-week course is on Saturdays from 10:00am-1:00pm *please note new dates* starting October 12, 2019 at the Corridor's BASEcamp facility. CODEcamp is a project-based, introductory code education program designed for busy adults of all experience levels in a convenient, affordable guided class format. Students learn fundamentals of HTML, CSS and JavaScript with a combination of written and verbal instruction using real-time online programs.

We are pleased to again involve the University of South Carolina Beaufort with CODEcamp instruction. This year, Jarod Valvo, a junior in the computational science program at USCB, will instruct the class. With the professor-appointed best website of his class as well as having taught coding languages to middle schoolers, Jarod is up to the task and excited to instruct a new class in learning front-end web development. Our inaugural CODEcamp Beaufort class was taught by Dr. Brian Canada, Chair of the Department of Computer Science at USCB.

If you are curious about what it takes to create the look, feel and design of a website this is your chance to see what it's all about! The practical application of what is learned with hands-on CODEcamp can be utilized right away. The next class will cover a different kind of coding, such as Android, React Native or a beginning course on mobile (iOS/android), depending on what the community wants to learn. Participants can further their coding education by attending the SC Codes monthly meetup at BASEcamp. SC Codes is a free self-guided platform for all South Carolinians to continue their coding education.

Talent, one of the pillars of the Beaufort Digital Corridor, is crucial to the economic vitality and global competitiveness of the Lowcountry. Generating curiosity about coding and improving technical education contributes to the innovation and skills of our changing workforce. To become a sponsor of the program, please contact info@beaufortdigital.com.
