Ben Fry: Introduction to Processing for Android
The latest edition of the Processing project targets Android devices. Like the desktop version, it's designed for rapid iteration and to streamline how you develop and prototype. In addition, it provides a simple platform for building applications that make use of the affordances of mobile devices — touch input, location and tilt sensors, always-on network access, and portable, high-resolution screens.
With Casey Reas, Ben Fry started the Processing project in 2001, which seeks to ruin the careers of talented designers by tempting them away from their usual tools and into the world of programming and computation. Similarly, the project is designed to turn engineers and computer scientists to less gainful employment as artists and designers. Ben is principal of Fathom, a design firm based in Boston that focuses on understanding complex data through information graphics and interactive tools, delivered via the web, software-based installation works, mobile devices, or in print.
