Meetup Announcement:

We learned how to load data in Processing and see some basic drawing features. That made us able to draw a wide range of different static graphics.


Gabriel Gianordoli is an information designer from Brazil currently enrolled in the MFA Design & Technology program, at Parsons The New School for Design.
He has been working with information and visual design for the past 6 years, mainly in magazines, using code to visualize data. His aim in visualization is to help people get from nonsense information to meaningful knowledge.
His work has been internationally recognized though 4 awards from the Society of News Design and one from the Society of Publication Designers.


- Introduction to Processing: language and IDE

- Basic drawing features

- Loading data

- Displaying data

- Hands-on: each person can come up with ideas to display its data. Instructor showed useful code practices to get them done.


You don't need to know programming to take this workshop. We covered some coding basics from the beginning. Speaking of technical requirements, download Processing 2.0 and run some examples to make sure it is working in your computer.
