Processing 1.0
 / 

Casey Reas and Ben Fry announced tonight that Processing has officially hit version 1.0!

Processing has been hugely important to me — it’s basically what transitioned me from a non-programmer to hacky programmer. (It’s progress.) Processing’s is the first forum I’ve contributed to since the Prodigy video game boards in 1992. (And these contributions are, er, a little more thoughtful.)

And seeing what others have done with Processing has bent my ambitions around (going for sort of a gravity well vs. photons analogy here) and set me on a track towards things like generative media. In fact, I think it’s fair to say that Processing changed my life. Whoah — I don’t think I’d even had that thought before just now. Heavy! True!

So thanks Casey, thanks Ben, and thanks to everybody who’s contributed code, time, expertise and explanation. It’s a brilliant, broad-spirited project, and I’m delighted to see it flourish.
