Coding skills are in high demand and the need for programmers is still growing. However, taking the first steps in learning more about this complex subject might feel daunting, and many of us feel left behind by the coding revolution. By using a graphic method to break code into small chunks, this book brings essential skills within reach.
Terms such as algorithm, variable, string, and loop are all explained.The book also looks at the main coding languages that are out there, outlining the main applications of each language so you can choose the right one for you.
Individual chapters explore different languages, with practical programming projects to show you how programming works. You’ll learn to think like a programmer by breaking down a problem into parts before turning those parts into lines of code. Short, easy-to-follow steps then show you, piece by piece, how to build a complete program. There are challenges for you to tackle to build confidence before moving on.
