About the Author:

Nikolaus Gradwohl

Nikolaus Gradwohl was born in 1976 in Vienna, Austria, and always wanted to become an inventor like Gyro Gearloose. When he got his first Atari, he decide that becoming a computer programmer was the closest he could get to that dream. He has since made a living writing programs for nearly anything that can be programmed, ranging from an 8-bit microcontroller to mainframes. In his free time, he likes gaining knowledge on programming languages and operating systems.

Nikolaus has been using Processing since 2008, and has written countless sketches and some Processing libraries.
