Scott led a [[Processing]] workshop on September 13th, 2008. See [[Processing Workshop Report]] for a summary.
+
Scott will be teaching a workshop on [http://processing.org Processing], a free, open-source programming environment for artists, designers, and anyone interested in getting the computer to do interesting things.  '''RSVPs are required''', as space is limited to 15 people. See [[#What You Need To Do]] to participate.

== Overview ==
 +
 
 +
Do you remember the triangular "turtle" from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logo_%28programming_language%29 Logo]?  "Pen down, move forward, turn right..."  It was an early, easy way to tell a computer how to draw something on the screen.  Processing is just like a modern, really buff version of that turtle.  Think of it as being like Flash, only less flashy.  If you've ever had a vision of something you wish you could make on a computer screen, you can probably make it in Processing.  Well, maybe.  This workshop will get you started, anyway, even if you've never typed a line of programming code in your life.
 +
 
 +
This workshop is intended as an introduction for complete beginners.  No programming is experience necessary, although you should be generally familiar with how to use your computer, download files, install programs, and so on.
 +
 
 +
While the emphasis of this workshop will be on visual expressions of code, the concepts learned here can be extended to get Processing to generate audio, talk to microcontrollers (e.g. Arduino boards, MAKE boards, OSC devices), and generally interface with all kinds of other neat stuff.
