Synopsis:

So you want to learn programming, but you’re a complete, true beginner? Most so-called “beginner’s” programming books assume you know plenty about technology – maybe too much. Not this one! Sams Teach Yourself Beginning Programming in 24 Hours starts from the absolute beginning, explains everything you need to know before you start programming, and then presents simple programming techniques you can use wherever your interests or career take you.

 

Greg Perry teaches you JavaScript, one of the world’s easiest languages – and the #1 programming language used on modern web sites. Once you’ve learned how to code the right way in JavaScript, Perry shows how to apply those techniques in several of today’s other leading programming environments.

 

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 with this incredibly easy and friendly book, you won’t just understand basic programming concepts: you’ll be writing reliable, useful programs of your own.
