Daniel Shiffman‘s book ‘The Nature of Code‘ has finally been released. It is available for free online, or you can download an offline copy by donating your chosen amount to the author (and/or the Processing Foundation). The print version of the book is coming soon.
It is well written, very clear to follow, with small bitesize pieces of code that illustrate what is being discussed. This a fantastic resource and we should all be very grateful to Daniel for his generosity to the creative coding community.
You can read the book online here, and download the Processing code examples here.

I’ve just come across an awesome conference happening in Munich, Germany on 23rd & 24th November 2012. It’s called the Push Conference, and is focussed on User Experience (Sold Out) and Interactive Arts. I’m particularly interested in the sessions by some of the people on the second day …
There are still tickets available for day two (Interactive Arts) and they are currently only € 89.00
