Created By: Jim S

Are you interested in Processing and Python? Wouldn't it be amazing if you could do creative coding with Processing but using Python? Well, now you can!

py5 is a new version of Processing for Python 3.8+ that I've been building over the past 2 years. It can do just about all of the 2D and 3D drawing Processing can do, except with Python instead of Java code.

Come to this session to learn more about py5. I'll give an overview of the project, share the project history, and discuss where the project is headed. There will be lots of demos and opportunities for you to experiment with the code.

I'll be leading the session in-person from ITP but everything will work just as well for online campers. Come, ready to have fun learning about a new programming library!
