Product overview

Coding for Beginners, 2nd edition begins by explaining how to easily create a programming environment on the reader’s own computer, so they can quickly begin to create your own working programs by copying the book’s examples.

After demonstrating the essential building blocks of computer programming it describes how to code powerful algorithms and demonstrates how to code classes for Object Oriented Programming (OOP).

The examples throughout this book feature the popular Python programming language but, additionally, the final chapter demonstrates a comparison example in the C, C++, and Java programming languages to give the reader a rounded view of computer coding.

The code in the listed steps within the book is color-coded to precisely match the default color-coding of the Python IDLE editor, making it easier for beginners to grasp.

By the end of this book, readers will have gained a sound understanding of coding and be able to write their own computer programs that can be run on any compatible computer.

Frequent new releases of the Python programming language are made available as small improvements are added to the language. Coding for Beginners features the very latest versions of Python at the time of publication. Python development is one of evolution, rather than revolution, so the examples provided in these books can be used in subsequent releases – simply download the latest version of Python then follow the easy steps.
