Loops

Learning Processing session #6

These video lessons accompany Chapter 6 (Loops) from the Learning Processing textbook.

#6.1

While Loop

24 Jul 2015

In this video, I introduce a fundamental concept of programming: The “Loop”.

#6.2

Two Loops / Grid Exercise

24 Jul 2015

This video shows how to create a grid pattern on screen using two loops, one for horizontal, one for vertical.

#6.3

24 Jul 2015

This video demonstrates another kind of loop: The ‘for’ loop

#6.4

Variable Scope

24 Jul 2015

This video covers the concept of a variable scope, demonstrating “local” and “global” variables in Processing / Java.

#6.5

Loop vs. Draw

24 Jul 2015

This video discusses how draw() is also a loop. When does it make sense to have a for or while loop in draw() vs. just use the fact that draw() itself loops?

#6.6

Nested Loops

This video looks at nested loops, i.e. a loop inside a loop.
