During the last couple of weeks I’ve been learning Processing, another tool in my Master’s degree’s utility belt. My workgroup is supposed to deliver a big project in one month and Processing will be our programming language of choice. I’ve meant to learn it for a long time, but there’s nothing like real need to get me to actually do something. So I bought my first programming book in nearly a decade — Daniel Shiffman’s Learning Processing (which besides being a good manual I found a very fine primer on computer programming) — and got on with it.
You can see the results of my first half-decent experiments → here, and I’ll be adding more as I go on. Be careful though — I did some experimenting with (annoying) sound too. All things Processing are actually Java, so there’s a slight chance you might need to install Java on your computer. Enjoy!
