Learning the Basics of coding – Processing

Processing – Java

I have had a little experience in coding a few years ago at 6th Form, but I have forgotten most of it so it is like starting again which is exciting but at the same time quite confusing.

The program we are using at the moment is called Processing which uses the language Java, which is a programming language I haven’t used before.

The task today was to create something which would create random sized circles which had random colours.

I find the logic of programming quite easy to follow when its already on the screen, but when it comes to typing it up by my self I find it quite hard to remember all the programming words.

But doing this task has taught me ways of setting out the code before putting in the rest, so setting the code into blocks makes it clear on what code preforms what function.
Another thing is to use notes which is marked as ‘//’
This is really helpful because you can type text which won’t effect the code in anyway but will tell you what the code does.
