This book will help budding young developers explore the fundamental elements of computer code: programming languages, algorithms, loops, variables, co-ordinates ... and what to do when things go wrong!

Finally, you can't be a brilliant coder unless you know how to stay safe online. Learn about the Internet, how to keep your information private and how to surf the web safely.Kids Get Coding is a fantastic resource for children looking to get started with coding. The book contains practical on- and off-line activities that are easy to follow and fun to try on your own or with friends. Guiding young coders throughout is Data Duck - a computer-programming mastermind here to help with hints and tips!Kids Get Coding is written by Heather Lyons and Elizabeth Tweedale of blue{shift} - a company dedicated to teaching children to become active creators of technology.
