In this video of their talk from the Eyeo Festival, Ben and Casey talk about the forthcoming Processing 2.0. You have to click-thru the image above to watch it, because embedding is disabled for the video.
Since 2001, Ben Fry and Casey Reas have developed Processing, an open source programming environment created for the visual arts. In this presentation, they discuss the past, present, and future of the project as it nears the 2.0 release.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
