Processing Workshop

In order to create our visuals we had to use processing to retrieve the APIs.

Through Flickr, we had to go onto the app garden in order to get an API

We then received key and secret which is needed in the code to retrieve the APIs

They key is inserted into the code in order to allow the flickr to search through the photosScreen Shot 2016-03-22 at 10.02.18 p.m..png

The code in order to search for a photo and place multiple images over one another with a fade.

Using the string as the search term, this is what was produced when searching for ‘giraffes’

This code is useful in helping us understand APIs. However, what we are wanting to do will produce live and fast paced data being streamed instantly and continuously. From this tutorial we understand APIs and how they work, I have a basic understanding of for loops, functions and arrays. Now we can start researching the code needed to create what we want.
