This is an example of what I am learning in the computer lab. We are using an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) called Processing . The first task we were given was to display coloured circles in a window, each time the programme is run it must generate random sized circles with random colours and turn the screen black when the mouse is clicked. I found this task difficult at first as we have only just started learning Processing, but as we were able to help each other we managed to work it out without too much trouble. I have included an image below showing the code and an example of the output.
Processing (available from processing.org) is a free open source software used for learning, prototyping and production. Processing is geared toward creating visual interactive media and was started in 2001.
