It seems like every day I hear about another Processing book being published (or soon to be published). Joshua Noble’s recent book includes Processing along with openFrameworks and Arduino: Programming Interactivity: A Designer’s Guide to Processing, Arduino, and Openframeworks. Processing for Visual Artists is another new book I know little about, but am excited to check out. And I’m particularly thrilled for the upcoming Getting Started with Processing. An inexpensive, short beginner’s guide is a big gaping hole in the landscape of Processing books and this book should fill it nicely. It’s really what I imagined Learning Processing: A Beginner’s Guide to be, but the book ballooned a bit into a more comprehensive beginner textbook. Hopefully Casey and Ben’s new book can introduce a lot of new people to Processing.
Finally, Ira Greenberg’s new book The Essential Guide to Processing for Flash Developers recently came out. And if you didn’t notice, I wrote the forward! Which, strangely enough, means that my name is somehow on the cover along with Ira’s. Which is pretty crazy considering that I only wrote a few short paragraphs.
Oh and I still am working on a The Nature of Code book, with more PDF chapters to be available soon!
