In this module, the student is taught the basic programming skills in Processing.


Processing is a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts, in a 2D-coordinates system. One of the aims of Processing is to allow non-programmers to start computer programming aided by visual feedback. The Processing language builds on the Java language, but uses a simplified syntax and a graphics user interface.
