I am a big fan of Processing. My background is mathematics at the University of Chicago, work as a professional programmer, PhD at New York University, research in robotics and manufacturing at IBM Research, other positions at IBM, then academia, now at Purchase College/State University of New York. Please visit
At Purchase, we have a combined mathematics/computer science degree. We are pleased with the results from starting off with Processing, both for the majors and others who take the Computer Science 1 course. I am officially retired. However, I am teaching one section of our CS I class this semester. In the Spring, I will teach a new, general education mathematics class on origami.
My promotion of Processing is demonstrated by the publication of my book, Programming 101 (Apress Publishers chose the title). Please go to https://www.apress.com/br/book/9781484236963
Each chapter has a short section entitled Under the Covers , written in response to a friend who complained that students learning Processing did not know what was going on.
I look forward to participating in this community.
