            A new title in The QuestKids children's series that was launched by In Easy Steps in 2018, designed to make learning fun for children. Coding with Python - Create Amazing Graphics introduces coding in Python through a variety of projects. Each one teaches new coding concepts and ...results in some amazing graphics. Discover how to mix colours, make patterns, draw 2D and 3D shapes. Learn how to use loops, variables, random numbers, and functions in Python. Packed with challenges, tips, and extensions to keep all budding coders engaged and eager to keep learning and creating! To create the games in this book, children will need a desktop computer or a laptop. The games require a proper keyboard so will not work well on a tablet or iPad. It is recommended that children should be supervised when using the internet, especially when using a new website. This is the UK English edition.

            With this visual guide to computer programming for beginners, it has never been easier to learn how to code. Coding skills are in high demand and the need for programmers is still growing. Covering three of the most popular languages for new coders, this book uses a graphic metho...d to break complex subjects into user-friendly chunks, bringing essential skills within easy reach. Each chapter contains tutorials on practical projects designed to teach you the main applications of each language, such as building websites, creating games, and designing apps. The book also looks at many of the main coding languages that are out there, outlining the key applications of each language, so you can choose the right language for you. 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, Beginner's Step-by-Step Coding Course is the ideal way to get to set you on the road to code.

            Learn to program with visual examples. Programs increase in complexity as you progress - from drawing a circle to 3D graphics, animations, and simulations. A Graphical Introduction to Programming teaches computer programming with the aid of 100 example programs, each of which int...egrates graphical or sound output. The Processing-language-based examples range from drawing a circle and animating bouncing balls to 3D graphics, audio visualization, and interactive games. Readers learn core programming concepts like conditions, loops, arrays, strings and functions, as well as how to use Processing to draw lines, shapes, and 3D objects. They'll learn key computer graphics concepts like manipulating images, animating text, mapping textures onto objects, and working with video. Advanced examples include sound effects and audio visualization, network communication, 3D geometry and animation, simulations of snow and smoke, predator-prey populations, and interactive games.

            Coding for Beginners in easy steps, 2nd edition begins by explaining how to easily create a programming environment on your own computer, so you 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 you 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, you will have gained a sound understanding of coding and be able to write your 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 in easy steps and Python in easy steps both feature 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.

            An accessible yet rigorous crash course on recursive programming using Python and JavaScript examples. Recursion, and recursive algorithms, have a reputation for being intimidating. They're seen as an advanced computer science topic often brought up in coding interviews. Moreover..., coders often perceive the use of a recursive algorithm as a sophisticated solution that only true programmers can produce. But there's nothing magical about recursion. Its fearsome reputation is more a product of poor teaching than of the complexity of recursion itself. This book teaches the basics of recursion, exposes the ways it's often poorly taught, and clarifies the fundamental principles behind all recursive algorithms. It is project-based, containing complete, runnable programs in both Python and JavaScript, and covers several common recursive algorithms for tasks like calculating factorials, producing numbers in the Fibonacci sequence, tree traversal, maze solving, binary search, quicksort and merge sort, Karatsuba multiplication, permutations and combinations, and solving the eight queens problem. The book also explains tail call optimization and memoization, concepts often employed to produce effective recursive algorithms, and the call stack, which is a critical part of how recursive functions work but is almost never explicitly pointed out in lessons on recursion. The last chapter, on fractals, culminates with examples of the beautiful fractal shapes recursion can produce.
