Synopsis

Cool Coding by Rob Hansen, Damien Weighill

Coding, now firmly part of the National Curriculum, is a huge subject and can seem slightly impenetrable, especially to parents, and that's where this book comes in. Cool Coding contains everything you need to know about computers and coding, from the very basics of binary code and how it works, to the myriad things that coding can actually do, to the brave new worlds of artificial intelligence, robots and cloud computing. It introduces the most popular coding programmes taught in schools, Scratch and Python, and shows how coding can be used to create websites, games and apps, and make robots and moving vehicles, with the help of nifty devices such as the Raspberry Pi. And if you've ever wondered what spaghetti code, duck typing, snakecase or The Internet of Things are, you'll find the answers here.
