An introduction to Processing

In order to explore the iterative design process, we will be developing a piece of interactive information graphics for a shared public space, using Processing.

Processing is an open source programming language, established by Ben Fry and Casey Reas, that allows people to create complex graphics, animation and interactive applications.

Our first workshop consisted of learning the basics of processing. We explored the basic shape primitive functions such as rect(). and ellipse(). We also looked at how to change the canvas size, changing the fill of shapes, and making shapes interact with each other.
