Skill Level Beginner
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Bart Poulson, and I'd like to welcome you to Interactive Data Visualization with Processing. Processing is a free, open source programming environment that's based on JAVA. In this course, I'll teach you how to create basic and complex shapes, static sketches and dynamic animations, and interactive sketches that respond to user input. I'll also show you how to install external libraries that can add functionality to your sketches, import local and external data sets into Processing, and develop custom visualizations that are perfectly suited for your data.
Finally, I'll demonstrate how you can export images and animations from your visualizations for use in other programs, and create standalone applications for Mac, Windows, and Linux, as well as Android mobile devices with a single click. And so, let's get started with Interactive Data Visualization with Processing.
