Leann’s Thoughts

I wish I had this book when I was younger! This book is great for anyone who wants to learn the basics of coding with HTML and Javascript. This is not an old programmer’s book: this is a light-hearted and fun book which explores the history of gaming and makes learning how to code HTML much easier than the way I learned.

Whether you are 8 or 80, this is a great book to even casually read if you are curious about how programming works. It assumes no prior knowledge: in fact, the first lesson is how to create a file folder and how to save files on a computer (both PC or Mac). If you get confused, the book contains the correct text and syntax. Just copy it onto the page and you will never get stuck.
This would make a great gift to a gamer in your life who talks about creating their own game when they grow up.
