Features

On OpenProcessing.org, users can create sketches in the programming language called Processing, even before they create an account.

Once they create an account, they can save sketches, comment, favorite and fork other sketches, follow other users, join groups to create themed collections.

Professors can create classrooms and invite their students, deliver examples and assignments by submitting sketches. All the classrooms are public, so anyone can check out the progress of any class and learn how others teach this new intersection of art and code.
