OpenFrameworks for Processing Coders – Video guide by Josh Nimoy

of_processing_josh

You have been using Processing for some time and wanted to try openFrameworks but were slightly unsure what the differences were. Then again, you have already been told it is very similar, especially since oF was inspired by Processing in the first place and there are a lot of similarities. Right? Well — what better way to learn than from Josh Nimoy himself in this extremely insightful and fun two part videos.

Josh guides you, the Processing coder, through the “mental transformation” needed to start using OpenFrameworks to create equivalent work. The videos were recorded as additional material to the class Josh taught with Syed Reza Ali at GAFFTA.

So far, I have shaved my face with a straight razor, did a claymation about pointers, and took apart a McDonalds cheeseburger. I hope it makes learning programming and its dry concepts a bit wetter.

Enjoy.

This is part 1 of an in-progress video guiding the Processing coder through the mental transformation needed to start using OpenFrameworks to create equivalent work. The video is being created as course material for the live GAFFTA class, and is not intended to be a replacement for the class itself. As OpenFrameworks and related technology are highly perishable, this video is not recommended for use in long-term courseware. For teaching purposes, always have a live, interactive human teacher.

      Hang on! What are we insinuating here… That all Processing coders are 5 year olds? ;) Even the code is in primary colours!

      OK, so C++ is different from Java. I figured that much. Thought I would actually get to see Processing in action vs Open Frameworks, or get specific examples of the differences and the commonalities. Maybe get a sense of what in Open Frameworks will look similar to me having done some project work in Processing.

      Shaving? Cheeseburger? Oh…ok. I guess.

      hang on, are you insinuating that primary colours are exclusively for 5 year olds?
