Ottawa Ladies: Learn to Program With Processing in My Upcoming Workshop

I'm hosting a full-day workshop on programming using Processing in a couple of weeks.  It's part of Girl Develop It Ottawa, which was founded to help non-technical women in our community learn new skills in programming in a comfortable and supportive environment.


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.

I look forward to seeing your materials for this!

Here's what I came up with for summer camps: http://camps.cs.washington.edu/2012/1/ It was a really fun language to work with.

That camp looks awesome! I'm going to survey the workshop students to see if they'd like a longer course like this.

I would honestly love to see this workshop, 'cept I dunno how well it would fly having a guy showing up. >_>

You could come help TA! It's postponed to September, though.

BTW, guys can attend as a guest of a lady. ;)
