Please Introduce Yourself

Thank you, Martin, for the welcoming words and the awesome paper on interface graphics!

Warm regards,
Don

Sir,

You are the reason why I started on Processing and still love it! Your tutorials are the best and so easy to follow and understand :smiley:
Thank you for doing such a great job!

I am a teen web developer. I got started with p5.js this year through Daniel Shiffman’s tutorials. I was looking for something visual and processing changed my entire view of programming. I didn’t create super awesome marvelous sketches(still learning :slightly_smiling_face:). So nothing to share but my journey.
Programming doesn’t have to be about solving complex math equations or creating something like Facebook. It can be artistic, creative and fun as well. And I love processing(who doesn’t?).
Well I don’t have a PC. But that didn’t stop me from learning something. I made basic social network website using just my phone. And now I am learning about more advanced JavaScript. I am not a guru or anything but my journey so far taught me that if you have the will, trust me guys, you can change the world​:slightly_smiling_face: just gather the courage and will, everything else will flow like melted butter :sweat_smile:

Hi all,

I am Miguel Sanches. I am currently working as a junior enginner and programmer at a broadcasting company.

I came across processing at my work in 2019. I studied physics engineering with a master’s in nanotechnology and didn’t have almost any experience in computer programming. Nowadays, I use on a daily basis Processing to design GUI, dashboards, and communication interfaces with electronic modules.
I became a user of this great forum to learn “new” topics, get some experience, and hopefully contribute to new projects and help others!

A special word and many thanks to all of you who contribute daily to develop Processing tools and take the time to help new users reaching new programming levels and clarify any doubts! Thank you @ProcessingOrg!

Hello everyone, I am Rishabh Taparia, an engineering student at NIT Trichy India. I was introduced to the processing foundation around three months back by one of my friend. I was amazed that it provides us Developers to combine our artistic and programming skills. I am still at my early stages at learning about the various applications of p5.js but am very excited to learn more about it. I am looking forward to this forum and contributing to this wonderful organization in all ways possible. Thanks!

Hello

I am Mohana Sundaram. I believe everyone has a space in tech and p5 made it lot easier for people to start involving in tech. I came across p5.js from the coding train youtube channel and it was amazing to write javascript in a simple and straightforward way. I started going through the codebase to know how it is implemented and I made my first contribution that day.

This community has helped me in understanding p5.js implementation and I am really thankful to this forum

Hello everyone!!!
This is so exciting. I just joined the community and would first like to wish you all a very happy new year and holiday season!
My name is Sasha and I have been working at GoodCore Software, an app development company, in the UK. I may be a developer by day, but I spend my free time playing the guitar and listening to bad pop music. :grinning:
So happy to see the diverse portfolio of all the members of this community!

Hello Processing community!

I’m Glenn from Long Island, New York, USA, and have been programming with p5.js since October, 2020, and sketching with Processing in Python and Java Modes for several years. My interests are in the natural sciences, geography, computer science, fractals, recursions, algorithms that combine order and chaos, and mashups that involve any of these subject areas.

The work of the Processing community as a whole and that of its individual members are a great source of ideas and inspiration!

I never seem to know what to type up for an introduction. So here goes.
My name is Kevin, I live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I don’t care for interaction with people in “the real world” to much, so where I live is 20 minute drive to the closest gas station. This gives me the ability to really focus on things without interruptions.

I started programming about 6 years ago. I started with C/C++ writing firmware for the Arduino. I was wanting to automate something in my home that there was nothing already made to control it. During the time I was building that device I had a need to transmit information from the Arduino to a PC. I found a piece of software that would help me do that and the author of that software helped me out quite a bit and also introduced me to a program called EventGhost. Some of you may have heard of it. Fast forward a few years, I am not the administrator/developer of EventGhost, not exactly sure how that happened but it did. In the last 5-6 years I am a pretty decent Python developer. I have become very good at writing Python bindings to Windows API functions and COM objects in pure Python. I am also good at writing code for Bindings to just about any dynamic library and have some experience writing bindings to static libraries using Cython.

My focus of attention is now reverse engineering the data systems in vehicles and designing upgrades that are drop in replacements for stock components.There are 2 projects I am focusing on at the moment, one of them is a replacement for old analog style gauges and also converting headlights to the technology seen in high end vehicles sold today.

I read over the “asking a question” and the “answering a question” topics and I have to say that the philosophy of the people that run this forum is identical to what mine is on the support forum for EventGhost. This is great to see and it is not seen all that often.

Beware! anyone that reads my posts should expect to read a “book” I try to be as complete as I can. I do not like playing the 20 questions game and try to include everything in single posts.

So there are some things about me.

Hello all :wave: I’m Colin - I work as a mobile software engineer by trade, and am also a musician and aspiring generative artist. I’ve been toying with Processing on and off for a few years but have recently started playing with p5.js more.

I’m writing about my visual experiments (and more) on my blog, which I recently rebuilt.

Hello, my name is António Costa, I’m an artist. I like to use processing and p5.js to create “tools” to edit images in weird ways.

My dream is some day be able to live as an artist :rofl: Yes, I’m a dreamer, better that being depressed.


My first topic ( sharing one example of what I usually do with processing ) :

Hello, I am Nancy. I am one of those who found out about Processing by chance (in my case it was the book Generative Design I saw in my workplace a few years ago) and fell in love with it. I am really interested in learning how to create animations and interactive apps with Processing using the artwork I like to create by hand and eventually add some music or educational content.
I’m a complete beginner in programming but I feel thankful for all the generous people in the Processing community who share their ideas and are kind to help others. Thank you all :slight_smile:
