Do you find programming foreign and intimidating? It doesn't have to be. In this class I will show you from the ground up why programming works the way it does, give you a sense of how to start writing programs. After the class you will understand what it means to think algorithmically (and what algorithmically means!)
To give you a taste of programming and get you writing code, we will do a few simple exercises in the Processing program language, which is designed for creating computer art.
In addition to the programming exercise, I will also give an overview for how to learn to program, and what are good resources to look into. I will also answer questions about specific project you'd like to get started on if you have any.
I have been doing web design professionally for six years, and I am a graduate student at the School of Visual Art's MFA Interaction Design program. Although I am a programmer, I work with many designers, and I want to give designers the tools they need to realize their designs on the web. I have given this workshop to my designer classmates, and they loved it. I am confident you will too.
