Easy to read, nice introduction to a very versatile programming language. But if I want to put Processing further into good use, I should read some about its application in that. I know O'Reilly has a book "Visualizing Data", written by Fry, so it can be served as a in-depth exploration of Processing.

My lectures at school suggest this book for learning Processing. I read some parts of it, and I read this already couple times. If you are new at programming, maybe this book suite you.

Processing is an amazing language. Powerful abstractions make it easy to draw interactive graphics with only a handful of lines of code. I used to think it only supports a Java-like syntax, but the Processing editor seems to indicate that I can add a JavaScript or Python 'mode' as well (not tested). The book itself is very neat, and eases you into working knowledge of Processing through small albeit concrete code examples. A pleasure to work through, and you should be able to finish the book in ...more

Quick and easy introduction to a surprisingly powerful language.

Una introducción simple pero entretenida a Processing y básica en programación. Se realizo tomando como ejemplo Getting Started with Arduino, se compone de teoría con ejemplos prácticos, que por jugar principalmente con la generación de gráficos e interacción humano-programa hace muy llevadero el aprendizaje.

Processing is a simple computer programming language that lets one use code to create drawings, animation, and interactive graphics.

This book is easy to study, and lets you jump right in to create some fun projects useful in learning computer graphics.

The Arduino open source prototyping platform is used to develop the codes. I used that to quickly write a simple program that generated a small image. So this all works!

Nice introduction to the drawing tools in Processing and its fundamental language constructs. Very, very little about creating user interfaces in Processing, which was what I was hoping to get from it.

The book covered all the basics for learning to use Processing. I couldn't find anything wrong with the book so it gets all 5 stars.
Rebekah Monson
Good intro and examples, but I wanted more information almost immediately. The higher-level work is entirely missing.
Fabrizio Bianchi
Really good introduction not only to Processing, but to programming in general.
Should be used in schools.
