With p5.js, you can think of your entire Web browser as your canvas for sketching with code!

Learn programming the fun way--by sketching with interactive computer graphics! Getting Started with p5.js contains techniques that can be applied to creating games, animations, and interfaces. p5.js is a new interpretation of Processing written in JavaScript that makes it easy to interact with HTML5 objects, including text, input, video, webcam, and sound. Like its older sibling Processing, p5.js makes coding accessible for artists, designers, educators, and beginners.

Written by the lead p5.js developer and the founders of Processing, this book provides an introduction to the creative possibilities of today's Web, using JavaScript and HTML.

With Getting Started with p5.js, you'll:

  • Quickly learn programming basics, from variables to objects
  • Understand the fundamentals of computer graphics
  • Create interactive graphics with easy-to-follow projects
  • Learn to apply data visualization techniques
  • Capture and manipulate webcam audio and video feeds in the browser

Comments about oreilly Getting Started with p5.js:

Very good for beginners, if you are already an experienced programmer, you're rapidly done – but it certainly shaves half an hour or two off the initial learning curve. Within one day I had completed one of my "visual phenomena" interactive demos with it in P3.

Comments about oreilly Getting Started with p5.js:

Nothing about 3d nor interacting with html elements very basic book more of a beginning programming book than a how to use the library. But I guess all of that is in the online documentation so not a bad getting started book
