Nel 2010 Mark Webster ha organizzato a Parigi una due giorni di workshop e exhibition su Processing. Il titolo dell’incontro era semplicemente Processing Paris, il corso era tenuto da Julien Gachadoat e Karsten Schmidt ed ha avuto un ottimo successo. Nel 2011, Cedric Kiefer e Andreas Köberle hanno iniziato ad organizzare degli incontri mensili in Germania e così nacque Processing Berlin. Non passò molto tempo prima della nascita di Processing Ghent e Processing Rennes. Processing Cities Project vuole incoraggiare la nascita di eventi a base di workshops, conferences, talks, show e tell riguardo l’utilizzo del codice nel processo creativo. Questo non significa necessariamente che siano inerenti a Processing, ma anche VVVV, Cinder, Open Frameworks e molti altri tool basati sulla scrittura di codice.
