Introduction to Processing

Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions.
Initially developed to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context, Processing also has evolved into a tool for generating finished professional work.
Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.

Jesse Scott has used Processing to create live visuals, light up large led matrices, drive laser cutters, control 3D puppets, and make custom Android applications.
Over the course of three hours, he will give a hands-on introduction and overview of the basic concepts involved in Processing, focusing on visual production and basic interaction.
Participants will leave with several examples showcasing how to achieve sophisticated visual and interactive design projects with very little code.

Please pre-register with jesse at memelab dot ca.
Workshop limited to 12 people.
No previous programming experience required.
Participants encouraged to bring their own laptop.
€15 for non-members, and €5 for members.

    This sounds fantastic.
    I'm an artist from Melbourne, Australia, and I'm in Berlin for a couple of months on a honeymoon/research trip/holiday. Jordana Maisie suggested I check you out and I saw this class. I generally make sculptures but like most contemporary artists my practice spans a variety of media. I've made animations with Flash for a while and have seen Processing in action and would LOVE to get an overview into it.
    I would definitely like to come to the class - if there's room. Also, my Deutsch is ... schlecht ... is the class in english or deutsch...?

    Hi Jay, hi Jesse -
    I tried re-sending my email from last week, after Jesse confirmed on Monday that there were a few spots left. As I haven't heard back so far, I hope "registering" via the comment form works, too. I am an ODC/ Betahaus member, if that matters.
