Want to get in on the fun of creative code? We just got our hands on the latest book from the co-founders of the Processing project, Casey Reas and Ben Fry: "Getting Started with Processing". Itis absolutely perfect for those who always wanted to dive into the world of creative code but have been intimidated by the 500+ page programming books. The 200 page bookis packed with examples you can dive right into. From simple drawing techniques to some more complex examples, Casey and Ben take you on a direct and easy to keep up journey through the basics of Processing. Filled with lovely illustrations by Casey and Ben, covering basic topics such as simple drawing, media, motion, functions and arrays, the book also provides a small introduction into extended processing including 3D, image export and arduino. By no means is this a programming textbook, instead as the title suggests, it will get you started and definitely get you addicted!
Making an argument for software as a dense medium for visual arts. After doing work for 10 years, in this presentation Casey Reas reflect on the work and tries to put this argument for coding in a wider context.
