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! You can then hop online to try out your new skills on the companion website. Once you've got to grips with coding, it's important to understand the world of computers - how pixels make pictures, how sound works in videos, and how to store files so you can find them later. 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.
