It's now easier to learn to write your own computer software than it has ever been before. Now, everyone can learn to write programs for themselves - no previous experience is necessary.

Starting with small, simple one-line programs to calculate your age in seconds, you'll see how to have your webpage send you email, to shuffle your music more intelligently, to rename your photos from your digital camera, and more. You'll learn the same technology used to drive modern dynamic websites and large, professional applications.
