Browser-based real-time coding environment which is a great introduction to programming:
sketchPatch allows people to play with programming in a easy and fun way. You can write your own programs and run them in the browser, share them, or collaborate with other people making new versions of their programs.
You can use the site as a scrapbook, a portfolio, coding collaborations, hacking, jamming, jiving.
Also, we have invited featured artists to develop fresh and inspiring works for sketchPatch. We hope you will enjoy and be inspired by featured artists, as they are by you, and not be afraid to contribute to their code sketches.
We decided to use Processing as the programming language for sketchPatch, because it has been developed with ease of use and immediate visual output in mind. It is also open source and available to anyone. So, if you begin to learn Processing here, you can download the original Processing software from here, and run your sketchPatch pieces in it.
