Processing Community Day

To celebrate and explore art, code, and diversity in India

Processing Community Day (PCD) is an inclusive community conference for anyone interested in creative coding whether you are an artist, designer, programmer, student, or teacher. The event celebrates and furthers generative art and creative computation.

Processing aims to make creative coding a skill easily accessible and available, especially to communities who lack access to such resources.

PCD provides a platform for people to learn and grow together and to connect with each other, bridging gaps across not just technology but also across many diverse communities.

What is Processing
Processing is a free, open-source software platform for learning how to code using visual art. It was created by Casey Reas and Ben Fry in 2001. It includes a web implementation called p5.js, a Python based implementation Processing.py, Processing for Android, and Processing for RaspberryPi. Processing and its other implementations are maintained by The Processing Foundation and are used by a global community of artists, designers, educators, and programmers.
