Processing 101

Processing 101 is an introductory-level workshop that explores the creative potential behind Processing, a free and revolutionary programming environment that enables users to create interactive, dynamic, computer-based tools, projects, and art. Participants will explore creative programming in a project-based, collaborative learning environment. They will cover Processing-specific syntax, as well general programming concepts. This course is intended for absolute beginners. No prior programming experience is necessary, although students with prior programming experience are still welcome to attend.

Processing is a programming language and environment built for the media arts and design communities. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook. It is used by students, artists, designers, architects, and researchers for learning, prototyping, and production.
