Processing is an open source environment that allows people to create images, animations and interactions. Given its simplicity, it is not restricted to engineers. It empowers artists, hobbyists, and all creative people to graphically visualize their ideas with little background in programming and computer graphics. We will cover the basics of programming and of processing. We will create a simple animation and discuss potential uses of processing in creating generative art, data visualizations, animations, interactive interfaces and so on.
Bring your laptop with Processing installed on it! You can find the software at http://processing.org/
The workshop assumes no previous knowledge in programming. Everyone is welcome.
