The Processing Foundation was founded in 2012 after more than a decade of work with the original Processing software. The Foundation’s mission is to promote software literacy within the visual arts, and visual literacy within technology-related fields — and to make these fields accessible to diverse communities. Our goal is to empower people of all interests and backgrounds to learn how to program and make creative work with code, especially those who might not otherwise have access to these tools and resources.
A key goal of the Processing Foundation is to make both learning to program accessible and inclusive as well as contributing to open source accessibility and inclusivity. So while students should have some background in coding before applying for a Summer of Code spot, we would like to emphasize that beginners from all backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to apply.
The p5.js web editor, a project where we are focusing a lot of energy right now, is built with the React and Redux frameworks.

Hey Lauren and Dan,
I'm so so happy to see this submission! I think Processing/Process.py and p5.js are really great projects that could be incredibly exciting to work on for the students. Also love the idea of the alpha web editor you're working on. I'm happy to accept your submission for 2017. Welcome on board 🎉
