About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I am very impressed the way the author introduced the concept of breaking the problem into components and then start coding. It was very easy for me to explain my son (13 yrs) the concept of animation and manipulating the timer and effects. I recommend this for any one who wants to teach their kids or a class on web development.
I also feel this is more helpful for web development than some of the online tutorials for kids.
