Intro to Processing
Processing is an open source Java-based programming language designed to introduce beginners to computer programming in a visual context. In this interactive workshop we will cover the basics of the Processing environment, and work towards building a first interactive animation.
No prior programming experience necessary. Participants will leave this session with a good grasp of the fundamentals of computer programming and the skills to continue to develop their own projects in the future.
