            Learning to code has never been easier than with this innovative visual guide to computer programming for beginners. 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 may see...m 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, function, 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 language 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 a problem down 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 your confidence before moving on. Written by a team of expert coders and coding teachers, the Beginner's Step-by-Step Coding Course is the ideal way to get to grips with coding.

            As with the previous two editions, Learning Blender, 3/e will cover the creation of a full project - an animated character composed in a real live video. The approach will be the following: Part 1: Introduction to Blender. Learning the basics, the interface, controls, interacting... with and editing objects, take a look to the main areas of the Software. Basically understand how it works with simple exercises, so in next chapters there is no need to go back to the basics again (that won't interrupt advanced users who come from other software and don't need to be reminded about the basics). Part 2: This is the central part of the book, and it will go through the whole project. Each chapter will have two parts: a) Introduction: easy exercise to show what's needed for completing the chapter and why it is done that way or the technology behind it. b) Exercise: the complete part of the project that will be done in this chapter. This way, people new to 3D will be able to understand what's going on and why they need to do what they'll do, while experienced people can jump to the exercise itself, as they already probably know the basics from other software.

            The Digital Future of Museums: Conversations and Provocations

            The Digital Future of Museums: Conversations and Provocations (Paperback)

            What does a museum do, and who is a museum for, in these times of historically low public trust in institutions and uncertainty precipitated by rapidly evolving technological, political, economic, and social contexts? Providing an examination of the complex interplay between the ...museum, digital technologies, and the dynamic external pressures shaping and transforming the institutional context, The Digital Future of Museums argues that museums today can neither ignore the importance of digital technologies when engaging their communities, nor fail to address the broader social, economic, and cultural changes that shape their digital offerings. Drawing on moderated conversations with well-respected and influential museum practitioners, thinkers and experts in related fields around the globe, this book explores the role of digital technology in contemporary museum practice within Europe, the USA, Australasia and Asia. With conversations organised around three key themes, this book will present a mix of ideas, practices,a strategies and reflections upon successful, and failed, projects and approaches grounded in cutting-edge contemporary practice that will help prepare today's museums for tomorrow. Culminating in a set of competing possible visions for the future of the museum sector and accompanied by videos and a podcast series, The Digital Future of Museums should be essential reading for museum studies students and those who teach or write about the museum sector. It should also be of great interest to those who work in, for, and with museums, as well as practitioners working in galleries, archives and libraries.
