2019S, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 semester hours, course number S60506

Description

This English-language course continues directly where Introduction to Programming left off, which introduced students into the world of Processing-based graphics programming.

It is popular among students of architecture, industrial design, graphics design, and art & science. In general, anyone who is interested in this topic is welcome.

The course aims to build programming knowledge from the ground up, assuming some basics that were addressed during the first semester. We spend a lot of time engaging the basic building blocks of progamming, such as variables, conditional statements, loops, and functions. We also learn how to use the Processing system to render exciting, interactive graphics.

It is recommended that students have attented the previous course (Introduction to Programming), though this is not strictly necessary. However, they do need to bring a laptop, and a good deal of engagement.

Examination Modalities

The course is graded on the basis of incremental assignments, which have to be handed in during the semester.

Key Words

processing, java, programming, architecture, graphic design, computer animation, computer graphics, digital imaging, architecture related art, design
