Computer savvy kids and can be found surfing the web, chatting with friends, downloading music, and playing games - all at the same time. Many, however, want to do more. Not only do they want to use computers to stay connected to the world, they want to understand what makes them work, and they want to make computers work for them; they want to learn programming. Warren and Carter Sande, a father and son team, created just the book to get them started.

Hello World! Second Edition is a fun, easy-to-use guide with copious illustrations and engaging examples. It takes the reader on a playful tour of basic programming concepts and then puts those concepts together to make fun and useful programs. It uses Python, a programming language that is one of the easiest to read, write, and understand.

Like the first edition, Hello World! Second Edition is not just for kids. While the tone is light and engaging, it doesn't "talk down" to the reader, and beginners of any age will love its readability and sense of humor.

Uses free open source software Makes programming fun and easy to use Contains lots of pictures, cartoons, and fun examples Hello World! Second Edition is printed in full color

Readers don't have to have any programming experience, but they should know the basics of using a computer.

This book uses Python version 2.7.3. It's free open source software available for different platforms, including Windows, Linux, and Mac. Python is a programming language that is one of the easiest to read, write, and understand. Python is not just for beginners though. It used by programmers at places like NASA and Google, so once learned, it's a language that can expand to match the novice programmer's growing expertise. It also serves as a great foundation for learning many other programming languages.
