Find out how to use programming as a way to explore your ideas. Use a visual approach allowing for more immediate feedback, and natural output. Learn to draw, animate, and experiment with software (that you write).
Programming is a tool, which requires you to think about how to solve your problems before you touch the keyboard. Using the Processing framework (http://processing.org), this session starts you on the path of understanding how to think about programming. Processing is open source, free, and available on Windows, Mac, and Linux and based on Java. It was designed as a learning and teaching tool. Brief demonstrations of Ruby and Python coding provide a dynamic counterpoint to Java.
Prerequisites: No previous programming experience is required. Curiosity about how computers work is required.
