Hi Corey, Nice to meet you. I also work with iOS developers too!
I think most of us learnt maths as a quiz to solve, not as a creative tool. When I was studying trigonometry, it was surprising that all the developer around me also haven’t applied geometric on their code yet. (Now we do sometimes, and it became a little fun of the project)
I still find Processing is hard tool for me. (for a GUI person) But I’m sure it can be more interesting for a developer like you!
