About the Workshop

The mobile phone has reached a level of adoption that far exceeds that of
the personal computer. As a result, they are an emerging platform for new
services and applications that have the potential to change the way we live
and communicate.

Mobile Processing is an open source project that aims to drive this
innovation by increasing the audience of potential designers and developers
through a free, open source prototyping tool based on Processing and the
open sharing of ideas and information. This workshop will introduce the
Mobile Processing project and prototyping tool and provide hands-on
instruction and experience with programming custom applications for the
mobile phone.

Contents:
- Introduction to Mobile Processing, phone hardware and development
platforms.

- Survey of projects with the phone as both the platform and subject for new
forms of interactive applications and electronic art.
- Basic programming and prototyping concepts with 2D graphics and
animation.
- Phone input/output handling including keyboard, camera, sound and
vibration.
- Internet networking. Parsing and generating XML-formatted data.
- Text messaging and Bluetooth networking.


The workshop will be practical and at the end every participant will develop
a personal exercise.
