In this Processing tutorial, you will learn how to create simple interactive graphics with Processing language. Despite its simplicity, Processing is a powerful tool and learning Processing is quite easy. With it you can produce interactive animations for the web, Android apps and you can translate it into other programming languages.
This Processing tutorial is an introductory course to the vast possibilities of the language. You won't need any previous knowledge of computer science to follow it.
What you will learn in this computer graphics tutorial:
The Processing programming language is a sort of Java dialect - a simpler way to approach computer science. So if you are ever involved in complex projects in the future, much of the knowledge you’ll acquire in this online computer graphics course will be useful and reusable.
I have experience as an (offline) computer science teacher and I can attest that this is one of the best ways to begin learning to code. I have also been a Web Master and Processing is far simpler and straightforward for producing interactive graphics for the web than the alternatives. So with me learning Processing will be quite easy.
If you have a general understanding of programming, this language will speed up your processes. It’s the easiest solution when it’s necessary to produce interactive graphics for the web.
If you know Java you can add elements to the new concepts introduced here. You can create functions, classes and so on. Take this Processing tutorial and you will be able to export the code to different languages with minor changes.
If you are a teacher, Processing is the simplest textual computer science language out there. Introduce it as the first textual computer science language to teach in your course and then you will be able to teach Java as an upgrade. So even if you teach, this online computer graphics course is a great tool for learning Processing.
This online computer graphics course is designed to be easy - as easy as possible. While studying, try to experiment. Change the parameters of the examples. Don’t worry, I'll guide you all the way through. You will always be able to restart and use the code from the examples.
