Introduction to Processing
Learn the basics of computer programming with Processing, a programming environment that allows artists and designers to quickly create fun and interactive programs in Java and other programming languages! Because it is Open and has a large community Processing allows beginners to get started quickly and has enough libraries that more advanced users can find code examples to pursue almost any concept, from video game design and internet connectivity to Android applications and hardware integration. Come learn the basics of computer programming while making a simple character move around the screen. If we have time we may even get into animation!
