A look inside 'Hello World!'
What is Programming?
Very simply, programming means telling a computer to do something. Computers are dumb machines. They don’t know how to do anything. You have to tell them everything, and you have to get all the details right.
But if you give them the right instructions, they can do many wonderful and amazing things.
Why learn programming? Even if you don’t become a professional programmer (most people don’t), there are lots of reasons to learn programming. Maybe you want to create you own games, or maybe you can't find the right program that does what you want or need it to do, so you want to write you own. Most important is because you want to.
Computers are everywhere these days, so there's a good chance you use them at school, at work, and at home - probably all three! There are also many different computer languages. This book will teach you how to use one of those languages - one called Python - to tell the computer what to do.
