Processing is a programming language and environment built for the electronic arts and visual design communities. It was created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook.
Key Features Include:
- Interactive programs with 2D, 3D or PDF output.
- OpenGL integration for accelerated 2D and 3D.
- X-Platform for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
- Over 100 libraries extend the core software.
Processing is a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts. There are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning and prototyping.
The software exports Java applets which may be posted on the Internet and shared with other artists and designers.
Windows Defender blocks Processing 3.3.6. Not sure why this was happening, but hopefully a new release should be all that's necessary to fix it.
