The first lab work in the great Processing! 🙂
Processing is a wonderful (and free ;)) tool for creating magical things with code. Processing is built on top of Java language. It is open-source and there is a lot of documentation on it available online.
We have based our workshops on two great books, one is Make: Getting started with Processing by Casey Reas and Ben Fry, and the second one, Learning Processing: A Beginner’s Guide to Programming Images, Animation, and Interaction by Daniel Shiffman. There is also and online version of the second book linked here. Daniel Shiffman is an awesome teacher and the founder of The Coding Train. We highly recommend for you to check out his website and YouTube channel to learn more.
