The intent of this book is to introduce
computer programming to a complete beginner.
That said, it has been a long time since I learned
many of these ideas myself. If something is unclear,
or if you think I am explaining the obvious, please let
me know so that I can fix the problem for the next reader.
Also, as you read the book, keep this in mind:
You cannot learn to program by reading a book. You
must write code. Lots of code.
So as you read, certainly try the examples,
but if the book inspires an idea of your own, by all means work
on that for a while. The book will be here. You can
always come back and pick up where you were.
Play. Have fun. See what you can do. Then come back
and read some more. It is the best way to learn.
