An Intro to Classes and Libraries: In Processing

Comfortable with basic processing programming?  Ready to take it the next level.  In this class we’ll be doing an introduction to object oriented programming and teaching you how to understand and build your own classes  (as well as feel more comfortable backwards engineering other people’s code).

An Intro to Classes and Libraries: In Processing

Sat, Feb 11, noon-6pmComfortable with basic processing programming?  Ready to take it the next level.  In this class we’ll be doing an introduction to object oriented programming and teaching you how to understand and build your own classes  (as well as feel more comfortable backwards engineering other people’s code).  All this object oriented programming is helpful in organizing your own code, as well as having a better understanding of how libraries work.  After we understand the structure of classes, we’ll be going into some of the great libraries that Processing has to offer.  We’ll do an intro to some of the libraries that come with processing such as OpenGl, Video, and Minim, as well as some contributed libraries such as Peasy Cam, Blob Detection, OpenCV, AutoCad, and Triangulate.  Once you understand the basics of classes and libraries, you can go much farther with all that processing (and their supportive community) has to offer.

Bio: Liz Taylor is a new media artist whose interests lie in the intersection of  art, design, and technology. While studying digital media at Florida State University she explored the elements of data portrayal and art installation through an Undergraduate Thesis focused on utilizing Processing. While completing a Masters in Fine Arts in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design she investigates such topics as memory and personal identity through blending mediums such as illustration, computer programming, paper cut, motion graphics, installation, and soft circuitry techniques.
