People. Processing is a community effort led by a small group of volunteers.

Ben Fry and Casey Reas are the co-founders of Processing and the primary designers of the language and software.

The team leading the current push forward to Processing 2.0 includes:
Florian Jenett, Design and Net burgermeister
Dan Shiffman, Tutorials
Andreas Schlegel, Contributed Libraries
George Michael Brower, Contributed Tools
Jonathan Feinberg, Parsing & Android hacking
Chris Lonnen, Processing Development Environment
Patrick Hebron, Video Library
Andres Colubri, OpenGL integration
Damien Di Fede, Sound Library

The core Processing software is augmented by libraries and tools contributed through the community. These inventive extensions are the bright future of the project. We have a list of contributed libraries and contributed tools posted online. This contribution can't be underestimated.

The Processing Discourse forum is an essential part of the project. It's been alive and kicking since 2002 and is now in its third iteration. The forum moderators keep the conversation going; they have dedicated amazing energy to Processing. They are Philippe Lhoste (phi.lho), Cedric Kiefer (Cedric), and antiplastik.

Processing.js is an exciting future for Processing and the open Web. Three cheers for John Resig, Al MacDonald, David Humphrey, and the Seneca College’s Centre for Development of Open Technology (CDOT), Robert O’Rourke, and the Mozilla Foundation.

We give a special "thank you!" to Florian Jenett for years of work on the website, Sami Arola for writing the base of P3D, Simon Greenwold for incorporting camera and lights into P3D, Tom Carden for co-creating Processing Hacks and maintaining Processing Blogs, and Karsten Schmidt for his excellent contributions to the code, his work on toxiclibs, and Processing Hacks.
