The Hello Processing sequence of tutorials was produced by the Processing Foundation as a part of the Hour of Code™, a nationwide initiative by Code.org to introduce students to computer programming. The program, which uses tutorial videos and interactive examples, launched during Computer Science Education Week, 9-15 December 2013 with the goal of giving millions of students the opportunity to explore coding as a way of thinking and making.
The total run-time of the Processing Guide tutorials is about an hour, allowing for both the video introductions and time to write and modify a program after each such introduction. These tutorials are simple enough for individual users to work their way through them at their own pace, or they can be used effectively to teach Processing in classrooms.
Processing is used to teach programming principles within the context of visual media. The software is free to download and is open source. Visit the Processing website to download it and learn more.‹ Back to Resources
