Processing Workshop: 10 September 2009

On the 10th September 2009 I’ll be running a Processing workshop with Katrin Caspar. What is Processing?

Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions. It is used by students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is an alternative to proprietary software tools in the same domain.

Full details still to be worked out but it will likely include an introduction to generative art, examples of projects within the field, and a walkthrough to help you get started with Processing. And this being a workshop I’m also hoping we can help each other, find out what everyone is interested in and share ideas.

By the end of the workshop you should be able to create your own computer generated art and animations. You’ll also learn how to make them available on the web for others to see. (If you’re running a modern browser, you can see one example of what’s possible: HTML5 Canvas Experiment.)

If you’re in Gothenburg and you’re interested, please come along — no previous programming experience needed. It’s one of many events being planned by the Interaction Design Student Organisation (IDSO).

When: 10 September 2009 at 17.00
Where: Room Erik Stemme, 3rd floor, IT University (Google map).
