Vienna: 5-16-17 Nov 2013
Brno: 29-30 Nov -1 Dec 2013

Processing basics – brief


In three days will the workshop participants learn the very basics of creative programming starting from zero all the way to the Object Oriented Programming. Passing this course will make other Processing tutorials simple to understand and additional libraries easy to implement.
The teaching process is based on thorough explanation of principles and best practices in programming. The graphical examples will lead to a demonstration of the Object Oriented Programming using the Plethora library to simulate flocking and swarm behavior. 


The course is suitable for complete beginners as well as for intermediate Processing developers who want improve their practices.
The participants should bring their own computers (PC or MAC) with the latest version of Processing installed and ready to use. The course will start with a short troubleshooting session. The participants are advised to watch Generative design lecture. 
The teaching sessions will be held in English or Slovak respectively to the audience.
