1 What is this book? At ITP, I teach a course entitled Introduction to Computational Media. The Nature of Code serves as a follow-up. Once you’ve learned the basics and interactive physics tutorial pdf an array of applications, your next step might be to delve deeply into a particular area.
In the most basic sense, this book is one possible next step in a world of many. It picks up exactly where Learning Processing leaves off, demonstrating more advanced programming techniques with Processing that focus on algorithms and simulation. The goal of this book is simple. We want to take a look at something that naturally occurs in our physical world, then determine how we can write code to simulate that occurrence.
