Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Want to get in on the fun of programming graphics? With this handy book, you can learn how even if you have no programming experience. Processing, an open-source programming environment, makes it easy for anyone to create drawings, animation, and interactive images. Written by the co-founders of the Processing project, Getting Started with Processing is packed with projects you can dive right into.

Just download Processing (for free!) from processing.org and start tinkering with the examples in this book. You'll painlessly learn the core concepts of computer programming and how to apply them with Processing — everything from getting started to putting the final touches on your graphics. Join the tens of thousands of hobbyists, students, and professionals who have discovered this incredible and educational platform. This book is your key to understanding the hundreds of free examples and reference materials available online.

  • Quickly learn programming basics, from variables to objects
  • Understand computer graphics fundamentals
  • Get acquainted with the Processing software development environment
  • Create interactive graphics, using easy-to-follow examples
  • Use Arduino, the open-source electronics prototyping platform, to control your Processing graphics

Synopsis:

Get a hands-on introduction to the world of personal fabrication with the MakerBot, the easiest and most affordable rapid prototyper available. This book shows you how the MakerBot open source 3D printer democratizes manufacturing and brings the power of large factories right to your desktop. Not only will you learn how to operate MakerBot, you'll also get guidelines on how to design and print almost anything you can imagine — including models, mechanical parts, puzzles, and toys.

3D printing is a key part of the prototyping process, yet desktop models to date have cost upwards of $10,000. But not any longer. A variant on the open source RepRap 3D printer, MakerBot is designed to be assembled quickly and cheaply. Even the deluxe MakerBot kit costs under $1,000. This fun and informative guide — written by MakerBot's creators — opens up a new realm of discovery and creativity for makers, hobbyists, students, artists, designers, and tinkerers.

  • Understand exactly what's possible in the world of personal fabrication
  • Learn how to assemble, upgrade, and tune the MakerBot 3D printer
  • Familiarize yourself with the open source design tools you need to design 3D objects
  • Get a guide to 10 interesting and useful object prototypes you can print right away

Synopsis:

Learn computer programming the easy way with Processing, a simple language that lets you use code to create drawings, animation, and interactive graphics. Programming courses usually start with theory, but this book lets you jump right into creative and fun projects. It's ideal for anyone who wants to learn basic programming, and serves as a simple introduction to graphics for people with some programming skills.

Written by the founders of Processing, this book takes you through the learning process one step at a time to help you grasp core programming concepts. You'll learn how to sketch with code — creating a program with one a line of code, observing the result, and then adding to it. Join the thousands of hobbyists, students, and professionals who have discovered this free and educational community platform.

  • Quickly learn programming basics, from variables to objects
  • Understand the fundamentals of computer graphics
  • Get acquainted with the Processing software development environment
  • Create interactive graphics with easy-to-follow projects
  • Use the Arduino open source prototyping platform to control your Processing graphics
