Processing is an open source arts programming language and platform for creating interactive software. Arduino is an open source hardware platform that makes the world of microcontrollers and electronics more accessible that has been developed alongside Processing. The two work well together which means you can create software that interacts with the physical world or sensors that control software running on a computer!
This workshop will give an introduction to working with Processing and Arduino. No previous programming experience with electronics is needed.
Dates: Wednesday evenings 10, 17, 24 October, 7pm-9:30pm at SPACE in Hackney, London.
Level: No experience necessary.
Price: £90 (£72 conc) to borrow the Arduino and hardware
£120 (£102 conc) to keep the Arduino and hardware
All sessions will be at SPACE, 129-131 Mare Street, London, E8 3RH.
