Using Processing

“Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach computer programming fundamentals within a visual context, Processing evolved into a development tool for professionals. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.” –

^^^^ Here I’ve created a space to add text and notes, starting with the name of the project. Then I created the canvas size, changed the background colour, created a rectangle and circle object then changed their colours and outlines.
