Publisher Comments:

Discover the excitement and action of computer programming immediately with this dynamic addition to any computer programming course - ALICE 3 IN ACTION: COMPUTING THROUGH ANIMATION, 2E. This brief six-chapter supplementary book uses Alice — a popular 3D virtual reality computer programming system that reduces programming syntax and eliminates many of the common barriers to programming success. Alice and ALICE 3 IN ACTION: COMPUTING THROUGH ANIMATION, 2E make programming both simple and fun. Even if you are a beginning student with no prior programming experience, you will quickly see the possibilities and fulfilling results of computer programming today.
