Get Coding 2 is an exciting and informative how to guide for young computer programmers. In the introduction we have the definition of computer software and hardware and take a look back at the history of computer games. Parents, older siblings and grandparents will enjoy sharing their memories of gaming from the classics like Pac-Man and Mario through to Candy Crush Saga and Angry Birds.
Duncan Beedie's bold graphics, with lively characters and cute cat Scratch add excitement to this comprehensive information book. Colour blocking, hints and tips in speech bubbles and the attention to detail make David Whitney's second computer programming book a great tool for young coders keen to increase their skills and knowledge. In the United Kingdom, Whitney wrote this for the Young Rewired State global community, children and youth up to 18 to learn coding and programming, preparing them to become digital citizens. This is an excellent introductory guide to teach computing skills for both young and older users.
