Introduction

Creative Coding grew primarily out of the digital art and design community, as an approach to programming based on intuitive, expressive, and organic algorithmic development, with an iterative leap-before-you-look style.

We find these paradigms well suited for introducing computing to a new generation of students, who respond well to creative tasks and visual feedback. This book attempts to introduce programming and the fundamentals of computing and computer science by engaging you, the reader, in Creative Coding and Creative Computation contexts.
