We are now stocking Getting Started with Processing – A Quick, Hands-on Introduction By Casey Reas, Ben Fry. We get asked the following a lot from beginners “how do you learn how to program” and our answer is usually “try processing”. It’s open source, free to download, it has a massive community and the things you learn will help you with learning Arduino which is usually within the context we’re asked.

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.
