            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.

            Scratch is a fun, free, beginner-friendly programming environment where you connect blocks of code to build programs. While most famously used to introduce kids to programming, Scratch can make computer science approachable for people of any age. Rather than type countless lines ...of code in a cryptic programming language, why not use colorful command blocks and cartoon sprites to create powerful scripts? In Learn to Program with Scratch, author Majed Marji uses Scratch to explain the concepts essential to solving real-world programming problems. The labeled, color-coded blocks plainly show each logical step in a given script, and with a single click, you can even test any part of your script to check your logic. You'll learn how to- -Harness the power of repeat loops and recursion -Use if/else statements and logical operators to make decisions -Store data in variables and lists to use later in your program -Read, store, and manipulate user input -Implement key computer science algorithms like a linear search and bubble sort Hands-on projects will challenge you to create an Ohm's law simulator, draw intricate patterns, program sprites to mimic line-following robots, create arcade-style games, and more! Each chapter is packed with detailed explanations, annotated illustrations, guided examples, lots of color, and plenty of exercises to help the lessons stick. Learn to Program with Scratch is the perfect place to start your computer science journey, painlessly. Uses Scratch 2

            This is not your typical programming book! Jump right in with interesting, useful programs, some of which are drawn from classic computer science problems as a way of talking about the programming constructs in the language rather than explaining everything in a dry, theoretical ...manner that doesn't translate well to implementation. Rust programming has been the "most loved programming language" in the Stack Overflow Developer Survey every year since 2016! Learn why programmers are using Rust due to it's performance and efficency, without the errors and crashes that a programmer would find in common languages such as C and C++. Built around solving real problems, this book will help introduce you to computer science problems that can be built upon to create solutions for other problems. LEARN BY DOING: This book will focus on a practical approach to learing Rust. You will learn all of the language fundamentals through the use of programming examples that do interesting things! All of the programs covered will be based on a computer science problem or othre interesting problems that can be used as a foundation for demonstrating language syntax, data types and structures, and other features or techniques for developing programs.
