Publisher's Summary

Curious about coding but don’t know where to begin? What if I told you that I could empower you with the knowledge to get you started on your journey to success?

Coding for Kids is a beginner’s guide to coding for kids, young teens, and adults alike.

Coding is the modern world's DNA. To create any website, phone app, computer software, and even to make several household appliances functional requires coding. Coding is a part of all of our lives and will only become more relevant as time goes on. This is why coders play such an important role in defining the digital era and the future. The world needs coding.

Coding for Kids will help you understand the following points:

  • Concept of coding a machine can understand only two types of data: off and on. These combinations are represented as zeroes and ones in binary code, with each digit representing one switch. To be able to build a computer program by writing billions of ones and zeros would necessitate superhuman powers, and even if accomplished, it would most likely take you a lifetime or more. This is where coding comes. Perks of learning to code are earning profitability, obtaining smarter perspective, better job opportunities, improved creativity, effective communication, and math skills, etc. Reliable internet sources for learning to code, include Codeacademy, Udemy, EdX.org, Lynda, etc.
  • Alphabetically arranged coding terminology essential to learn for beginners, such as algorithm, array, block-based programming, bit, bug, DRY, DNS, etc.
  • Description of top-five programming languages like Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and Python with real-life applications to help understand the usage and functions of these languages.
  • Fundamentals of HTML in detail, such as HTML elements (headings, paragraph, anchor links, forms, etc.)
  • A lengthy list of basic HTML tags. 
  • Fundamentals of CSS in detail, including CSS colors, measurement units, selector types, font size, etc.
  • Fundamentals of JavaScript in detail, such as variable rules, operators, function, string.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Get started coding with it!

This audiobook introduces many common coding like HTML, CCS, java, and recently popular one, Python. There are many examples below every code so kids can see how it is written and then copy and edit it themselves, and there is a PDF to check your coding. Recommend for parents to listen with their kids as it's always great spending time studying new things with your family.

Great for Our Nephew

Bought this for our nephew as he has recently expressed an interest in coding, and figured why not capitalize on that interest and help him grow! After purchasing, its clear that his interest in coding has only grown. The lesson plans are relevant, and easy to apply for first time coders, and the information is structured in a way that is easy for kids to understand. When the school year starts, we think he'll be ready to hit the ground running with a bit of a head start, and hopefully keep growing this skill into something that could benefit him later in life.

The narrator is engaging and easy to understand, and the content is broken down into sections that are easily comprehended by grade school students. Would recommend to anyone with kids who have an interest in computer science or coding, and are willing to build their skills!

This is the perfect book to get your kids started with coding. We all know how coding will be part of their future, why not get them started earlier?

Very informative!

This book has an amazing amount of coding information especially as the author has given us a copy of his eBook, which helps as you can read and listen to the instructions which make it easy to follow.

This book is aimed at kids but I have to admit I got it for myself!! I wanted to build my website and didn't want to pay someone to do it for me. I am taking it one step at a time and the way the instructions are presented, they are easy to follow even for a novice like me who didn't even know what html code was!

Great book for kids and adults who want to learn the basics of coding.
