    Why a book? Shouldn't the first step be not cutting down some trees just to sell a physical product which will then have to be shipped around the world burning jet fuel?

    Processing is brilliant and what I originally learned to code with, but I would say P5 https://p5js.org/ its better maintained, you can actually send what you make to people easier and it can be integrated into web pages.

    I'd only use Processing these days if I wanted to interface with circuits or hardware.

    Honestly no point learning anything other than Javascript in 2019, unless you want to make videogames or apps.

    It's easy, versatile, fast and the syntax is pretty close to anything else you'd be likely to want to learn, unlike Python.

    How about you just go to YouTube and get the same stuff for free, and then some

    Because if it's free you wont do it. Presumably they're going for the gym membership ideology where the person is putting the money down to try and force themselves to do it

    Feels like it would have been an opportune time to rebrand like when Google became Alphabet.

    But yeah I think you're spot on with the halo-effect.

    Yet no one has ever done it before apart from NetPositive on BeOS.

    Pretty nice branding imho.
