Review

""Thanks for "Learn to Program." My 10 year old son picked it up tonight, opened up my old MBP, and just started going at it. It's fun to see him so excited about something that I love and am lucky enough to make a living at. Though my son is in our school's gifted and talented program, they have not yet delved into computers in much detail. "Learn to Program" is turning out to be a fun way to share my excitement about programming with him.""--Scott Meade

Synopsis

Computers are everywhere, on every desk, in your iPod, cell phone, and PDA. To live well in the 21st century, you need to know how to make computers do things. And to really make computers do what you want, you have to learn to program. Fortunately, that's easier now than ever before. Chris Pine's book will teach you how to program. You'll learn to use your computer better, to get it to do what you want it to do. Starting with small, simple one-line programs to calculate your age in seconds, you'll see how to advance to fully structured, real programs. You'll learn the same technology used to drive modern dynamic websites and large, professional applications. 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. Chris takes a thorough, but light-hearted approach that teaches you how to program with a minimum of fuss or bother.
