The workshop will give an overview, what these extensions can be used for:
1. Pure Data's internal scripting capabilities
2. Writing C externals inside pd objects using k_cext
3. Writing externals in scheme using k_guile 
4. Accessing the command line (bash) with shell 
5. Using python scripts & writing externals in python using py/pyext 
6. Customizing the GUI with tcl using toxy 
7. Dynamic object management with dyn~ 
The workshop will not cover Gridflow (ruby)  and mole (forth)

MusE - future development
Noteedit - A score editor
Noteedit is an editor for music notation that supports an unlimited
number of staffs and up to 9 voices per staff. You can use it to create
sheets of notes. You can import and export into many formats like midi,
musicxml and lilypond.
In autumn last year we continued the development of noteedit as it's
main author J. Anders decided to stop working on it.
We want to discuss the current status and try to answer all questions
concerning noteedit and why we think it is very well worth to be further
developed. We also will bring a poster. We seek to get into contact with
other developers of projects which have an impact or connection to music
