Processing Workshop: March 29, 12-4p
Cost is $40/person, space is limited.
This 4-hour workshop is a creatively-centered introduction to Processing; an open-source programming language developed by Ben Fry and Casey Reas during their time at the MIT Media Lab. Processing is essentially a simplified version of Java created for creatives who want to explore programming without necessarily needing to become computer scientists. In this workshop, we will focus on getting Processing up and running, explaining the basic mechanics of the language, create interactive graphics, and begin to explore ways to add features through external libraries.
