Intro to Processing
In this class we'll learn how to set up a program, mix colors, and draw shapes.
Today we'll learn how to store information in our program using variables. Now we can start coding animations and interactive art projects!
In this class we cover how to ask a question in our program. This skill will be very important as we learn to start and stop different events.
Today we'll learn how to store and display images in variables! This will let us get more creative with what we include in our programs, and give us the tools we need to code a slideshow.
Text and Strings
Storing and displaying words with code is different from some of the other data types we've seen. Today we'll use text and String variables to add some commentary to our programs and tell a story!
Functions help our code stay organized and give us a way to re-use whole chunks of code.
Sprites are a special type of variable that will open up whole new worlds of possibilities for our programs.
Today we'll dive deeper into Sprite coding skills and learn how to use them to build simple games.
Choose a final project idea as a class and begin working on it.
Finish up and present your final project!
We're planning our next semester. Please check back in May for Fall classes.
