Introduction to Creative Coding with Processing



D-Lab is excited to announce a series of Introductory Creative Programming Workshops with local digital artist and educator, Ed Fish.

Over this eight-week evening course you’ll learn how to program in Java using the popular creative coding framework: Processing.

This is the ideal course for anyone curious about coding but not from a mathematics or engineering background - perhaps you are thinking about studying architecture, computing, or design at university, want to broaden your artistic practice, or want to challenge yourself with a new skill.

The classes are informal and collaborative  - absolutely no experience of programming is required. By the end of the eight-week course you’ll have enough programming knowledge to continue teaching yourself or to begin learning another programming language.

Concepts covered:

  • Processing language syntax (Java based)

  • Variables

  • Conditional statements and loops

  • Arrays

  • Classes and functions

  • Generative design

  • Interactive design

Materials needed:

A working laptop with Processing installed:
