Description (EN)

This is a course for learning to code in Processing aimed at artists with beginner to intermediate coding skills. We will be loosely following Daniel Shiffman's book The Nature of Code.

In programming we can create systems with behaviours mimicking laws of physics like gravitation. This can drastically increase a sense of reality, liveliness and playfulness. The users interaction benefits from physically informed interactions with richer gestures, intuitive control resulting in a better engagement with the artwork or product. This class will introduce programming concepts in a playful and interactive way using the popular programming environment Processing.
