FAQ Question: 

What is the demoscene?

FAQ Answer: 

The Demoscene considers itself as a loose connection of creative minds with passions of creating digital art. A 'demo' is created by groups of people, or sometimes single individuals, to DEMOnstrate their skills. The traditional skill base of the demoscene is considered to be coding, music, and design.
Since at a demoparty visitors are encouraged to participate, and participation requires at least a bit of knowledge of the 'scene', it is unusual for visitors to not have at least a basic understanding.
