The author behind this compelling introduction, Twitter engineer Nick Morgan, begins with programming basics like working with strings, arrays, and loops, then moves on to more advanced topics like building interactivity with jQuery and drawing graphics with Canvas. Each chapter builds on the last, and lively code examples show the reader how to create bouncing balls, buzzing bees, and even complete games like Snake. Programming challenges at the end of each chapter are designed to stretch young brains and to inspire the next generation of coders to create their own amazing programs.
