about Processing

Many of my courses at Georgetown relied on Processing. Processing is a highly–polished library and integrated development environment [IDE] that sits on top of Java. Initially developed by MIT grad students Casey Reas and Ben Fry, the project sought to build upon the insights of John Maeda’s Design By Numbers project.

Processing is a remarkable contribution to art and procedural literacy in the 21st Century. Now, in addition to the countless libraries and tutorials built on top of Processing, there are nearly half a dozen open-source libraries for use with other programming languages including Python, Ruby, and (most notably) JavaScript.
