What Is Programming?
Programming is telling your computer how to do something. Large tasks must be broken up into smaller tasks, which must be broken up into still smaller tasks, down until you get to the most basic tasks that you don’t have to describe—the tasks your computer already knows how to do.
You’ll learn first about those basic things your computer can do (a few of them) and then find some simple tasks that can be broken down into a few of these basic things. Your first program will be so easy that it won’t even take you a minute.
""Thanks for "Learn to Program." My 10 year old son picked it up tonight, opened up my old MBP, and just started going at it. It's fun to see him so excited about something that I love and am lucky enough to make a living at. Though my son is in our school's gifted and talented program, they have not yet delved into computers in much detail. "Learn to Program" is turning out to be a fun way to share my excitement about programming with him.""--Scott Meade
