Frequently asked
Questions

What is Creative Coding?

That’s a great question! I gave my best to answer it with this blogpost.

I want to follow a few of your courses; I was wondering how long on average they take?

That’s cool! The courses are not too long. The focus of the curriculum is, to provide a low barrier access to Creative Coding. How long it takes to go through a course is based on how intense you study and how much time you spent.

I have upgraded my level on Patreon from “Supporter” to “Student” but it looks like i still don’t have access to all courses. What’s wrong?

Hey, I am very sorry for this convenience, until now i was unable to implement an automatic user-level-upgrade on my website so this has to be done by hand when i get an automatic e-mail about this. I check for these e-mail regularly, at least every few hours. I know, this sucks! i am working on it!

You can accelerate the process by sending me a direct message on Patreon, then i’ll receive a notification on my phone.

Sorry again!

Enjoy the journey!

Why do you use Processing for your teaching?

The Processing programming language has a long history and has gathered a huge global community over the last 20 years. Processing is the best documented and most widely used technology for creative coding. The principles of Processing are extremely well elaborated and have been adapted by many other languages.

At the same time, Processing is not limited to any particular medium and can be used for almost any output imaginable. With p5.js, there is now a stable technology directly from the Processing ecosystem that can be used to implement interactive experiences on the web. Processing is fundamentally much more than just a language. It is a way of thinking. And because this technology has been around for 20 years and is exceptionally stable,
