Processing: a language for data visualisation

Filed under: Development — adallow @ 11:40 am

I have been taking a look at, and and keeping an eye on, processing for the last few years. It has been awesome for doing data visualisation stuff. So far I have really enjoyed it. Its based on top of java (which means you need a JVM in your browser), I wonder if anyone will make a Silverlight based version?

From the website: Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions. It is used by students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is an alternative to proprietary software tools in the same domain.
