About the Author
Then I wanted to code the websites myself.
Now I'm on a mission to make the hard stuff real fun!

There is some very worthwhile material in this book. Here are five things I especially appreciated:
Getting through this material is far more difficult than it ought to be because of three things:
3. The website marks many correct answers as incorrect. For example, if the website's answer has unnecessary extra spaces and your correct answer doesn't have them, it will mark your answer wrong! The website doesn't grade intelligently, so you have to grade your own answer by comparing it to the solution provided.
The book covers all the essential topics for an introduction to programming, but some parts are aimed at beginners while other parts require prior programming experience to fully understand. Some material is redundant (very similar or repeated verbatim), and the information is sometimes presented out of order.
WHO WILL BENEFIT
1. The Grasshopper mobile app is aimed at complete beginners.
2. The SoloLearn website and mobile app cover multiple programming languages.
5. This 400 page Kindle book by blogger Kirupa Chinnathambi covers a lot and explains things in detail:
The website with the exercises has some significant problems, though I don't know how many of the exercises are affected. The one I tried rejected my answer, but the "correct" answer shown wasn't even for the same question! I'm mostly giving high marks for taking a different approach for those who think a bit differently.
I received this producut in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
I received this product for free in exchange of an honest review. However it hasn't influenced my review.
Personally I find it hard to memorize codes simply by typing/looking at it on paper or on a screen. I tend to get bored and my mind wanders.
In this book there's plenty of colorful pictures that explain and help keep you focused, It can seem a little childish but it works.
Very easy to understand and you won't find yourself bored.
Each concept features a small text explanation, a colorful drawing that makes the concept easier to get, some sample JS code putting the concept into lines of code, plus an exercise section where you can practice further by solving a featured problem by writing your own JS code (a proposed answer is available)
Get a copy and start learning JS visually!

I came across this book on kickstarter when I was looking for a way to learn code as I'm going to do a computer science degree next year and was told it might be helpful to have a little headstart so the first few weeks aren't quite as painful. And this book starts from the real basics and put it all into simple turns so you don't feel like an idiot but don't feel overwhelmed at all. It uses real life exaplmes to make it all a bit easier to understand and remember.
I have had the book for a few weeks now but have not yet made it the whole way through due to having lots of college work but it is very hard to stop working my way through it.
Overall it is a great book and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is interesting in learning a new skill!
In time I'll use this book to help introduce programming to my kids
Because of the many pictures also children can use this for learning.
A great starting point.
If you are a visual learner and hate lengthy terms, try this one!
And it isn't as boring as similar books, simple and full of color
Good job, mr. Demirov! Waiting for the python book
