What can you do here to GET STARTED?
- Grab Mediacomp Software including JES, our programming environment
- If you don't have your own, you can get Media
- You can see the book that we used in Spring 2003: book-Sp2003.pdf (Current version is available from Pearson.)
- See what students are doing in the Galleries
- Get the lecture slides from the Syllabus

From: 5 November 2002
As of this writing, the Jython Environment for Stuents enters beta
- JES has been build to support Java 1.3.1, make sure that that is the version that you are using.
- Download jes.zip and unzip it.
- From a command prompt, change into the JES directory and type "jes". That calls either "jes", or "jes.bat". (Linux and Mac OS X, you may have to type "./jes")
- From there, you can open the examples.py file and start playing with those examples, or better yet, start trying the examples in the book on the Curriculum page. (You'll need to fix pathnames, which are set up for Mark's computer for testing. pickafile() will help with that.
If this doesn't work for you (e.g., some Windows programs conflict with the execution of JAR's by setting classpath), try An alternative way to install JES
If you'd like to get the Java source files for the underlying media manipulations, see the Technology page.
This last Zip contains some media to play with, if you want to download it.
If you guys don't know python, here are some resources:
Python Cookbook: http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Python/Cookbook/
Learning Python: http://www.python.org/doc/current/tut/tut.html
Book that we used in Spring 2003: book-Sp2003.pdf
If you just want the 10 second sounds for the examples in the book (see Curriculum page), grab this zip: 10secondsounds.zip
If you encounter bugs, please post to JES Bug List
