Head First Learn to Code is under way!
We know, you’re just beginning your journey learning how to code, and it’s an unfamiliar land if you’ve never been there before, but we can help. Using the proven brain-friendly style of the Head First series, Head First Learn to Code teaches you what matters, and in a totally different way than your average introduction to computer science. If you’re new to Head First, here’s what you need to know: we focus on engaging, graphic examples, combined with puzzles, strong visuals, mysteries, and soul-searching interviews with famous computational objects to engage you in many different ways. You’ll find it fast, fun, and effective. And, despite its playful appearance, Head First Learn to Code is serious stuff: a complete introduction to coding.
Update from Eric, July 2017
Hi all! The book is well along now, with plans to be finished in the next six weeks. We’re working out the details for a quick online release before it goes to print. During that period I’ll be looking for a small group who can quickly go through the material and provide feedback. More to come on that…for now just enter your name and email below and we’ll notify you when we have the final details.
