Great for beginners to programming, but goes further.,
This review is from: Learning Processing: A Beginner's Guide to Programming Images, Animation, and Interaction (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Interactive 3D Technology) (Paperback)
Whilst at university I did a module centered around Processing. I'd never used the programme before and if truth be told, I wasn't great at programming (I didn't actually think I was getting myself into programming). This book takes you through everything step by step and as long as you do everything it asks of you, you will gain knowledge to take yourself forward and create great graphical animations, just using programming.
I had the help of lecturers and practical assessment, but I'm certain you could learn this alone (it might just take a bit longer).
It also comes with a whole website which has the examples from the book, so you can see what they should look like and it has the starter code already done, so you don't have to type it out from the book.
The only (very slight) drawback is it's written by an American, so it uses certain phrases and things which are very "American". But this isn't a massive issue and I'm nitpicking really.
