Packt is pleased to announce the release of Processing 2: Creative Coding Hotshot, a comprehensive guide that will teach readers everything they need to know to explore new frontiers in animation and interactivity with the help of Processing. The book makes learning Processing easy, with step-by-step explanations, diagrams, screenshots, and downloadable material.

About the Author: Nikolaus Gradwohl is an Austrian programmer who can write code for nearly anything that could be programmed, ranging from an 8-bit microcontroller to a mainframe. He has been using Processing since 2008 and has written countless sketches as well as some processing libraries. Some of his creative creations and tutorials can be seen on his regularly maintained blog at www.local-guru.net

Processing makes it simple for developers, artists, and designers to efficiently create their own projects. It offers users a platform to express their ideas and lets them engage their audiences in new ways.

Processing 2: Creative Coding Hotshot comes with nine exciting projects that will take readers beyond the basics and show them how to make programs to see, hear, and even feel! The projects will also show readers how to build their own hardware controllers and integrate devices such as a Kinect sensor board in their Processing sketches.

This book is not only useful for programmers, but also for non-artistic readers who are looking to expand their graphics and develop their creativity while learning the features of Processing.

The book consists of these nine engaging projects:

Project One: Romeo and Juliet.

Project Two: The Stick Figure Dance Company.

Project Three: The Disco Dance Floor.

Project Four: Smile-O-Mat.

Project Five: The Smile-O-Mat Controller.

Project Six: Fly to the Moon.

Project Seven: The Neon Globe.

Project Eight: Logfile Geo-visualizer.
