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,

I chose to start my courses with Processing. In doing so, I do not rule out adding other technologies to my curriculum in the future. But for now, that’s just up in the air (as of January 2022).
