If you are in the Ottawa area, I hope you'll check it out! I will post about the experience from the instructor's perspective afterwards.
Create Interactive Art and More! Learn to Program with Processing
Want to learn programming concepts you can apply to any language while creating fun, visual results? Then come try your hand at Processing in our one-day workshop!
Processing is a free, open-source Java-based language and development environment that is very well suited to learning programming for the first time. Even better, you can turn your code into visual art and interactions very quickly!
In this workshop, you’ll interactively learn fundamental programming concepts for two hours in the morning. After a one-hour lunch break, you will have a selection of fun and interesting mini-projects you can choose to work on with the help our your instructor and teaching assistants. You will be able to work at your own pace to ensure that you walk away with a solid, transferable knowledge of programming that you can then apply elsewhere.
