Publisher Comments:

Created at the legendary MIT Media Lab, Scratch is the easy, highly-visual, open source programming environment that's taking the world by storm. Sams Teach Yourself Scratch 2.0 in 24 Hours guides you through every step of learning to program with the brand-new version of Scratch, whether you're young or old, experienced or absolutely new to programming.

 

This guide teaches simply and clearly, through 24 concise, hands-on lessons focused on knowledge you can apply immediately. Each lesson builds on what's come before, showing exactly how to get practical results fast. Using Scratch 2.0's simple interface, you'll learn how to build games and multimedia interactions without the steep learning curve that new programmers usually have to climb. Unlike other books on Scratch, this one teaches "best practices" for writing programs the right way, from the very beginning.

  • Get started with Scratch, join the worldwide Scratch community, and create your first project
  • Master basic features including the Stage, Backdrops, Sprites, and Costumes
  • Use Scratch 2.0 blocks to handle motion, sound, and other tasks
  • Add logic to your Scratch projects
  • Implement media using sensing blocks and your own webcam and microphone
  • Go beyond the basics with custom blocks
  • Document your project, publish it, and make it portable
  • Remix projects using the amazing collection of Scratch code and content available online
  • Understand how Scratch 2.0 and Scratch 1.4 differ, and adapt older code for the newer version

Throughout, step-by-step instructions walk you through key tasks... Q and As, Quizzes, and Exercises test your knowledge... "Did You Know?" tips offer insider advice... "Watch Out!" alerts help you avoid problems. By the time you're finished, you won't just understand Scratch 2.0 concepts; you'll be ready to create inspired Scratch projects of your own.
