Software Design II  -  A Computer Programming for Artists Class.
We will study and practice computer programming for the purpose of creating artworks. Students will learn to program Java within the Processing environment. Processing is a free program (available free at http://www.processing.org) that runs and creates cross-platform, standalone applications that run on mac, windows and linux operating systems.

Java is a very ubiquitous programming language consisting of elements that are the same over most programming languages. The Processing environment is user-friendly and rich; user-created libraries abound for interfacing your code to sound, robotic, microcontrollers, physical computing projects, etc. Students who finish this class successfully will have a deeper understanding of coding practices and will be able to apply their knowledge over a wide range of programming languages. (i.e. flash actionscript, javascript, C++, etc.) Students will also have a firmer grasp of the breadth and depth of the types of projects and artworks that can be created using coding solutions.

I welcome your feedback! Any questions or comments please email Rose Marshack at rmarsha@ilstu.edu.
