The Demoscene is an international computer art subculture focused on producing demos: self-contained, sometimes extremely small, computer programs that produce audio-visual presentations. The purpose of a demo is to show off programming, visual art, and musical skills.

The History of Tokyo Demo Fest

Description: Beginning in 2011, Tokyo Demo Fest(TDF) celebrated it's 10th anniversary in 2021. The demoscene, which was thought to have never existed in Japan until then, actually had a very close culture. At Tokyo Demo Fest, various people gather, meet, and release new works. In this seminar, we will explain the transition of Japanese computer culture before TDF, the history of TDF and its charm, and explore the inner workings and secrets by those who go on to win first place in the TDF Demo compo.
