Processing basics for architectural and multimedia design

poster.3dm 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.
