“Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is Fun to program.”
– Linus Torvalds (developer of the Linux kernel)
Having a basic knowledge of programming can open many different doors for the newcomer to explore. You can understand how hardware and software work together better, how your computer or device functions and how incredible open-world gaming environments are converted From ones and zeros to what’s on your monitor or TV.
Technology is everywhere and it’s all connected through programming. Your TV, microwave, in-car entertainment and the Internet itself are all reliant on good programming to make them work the way you want them to.
Within these pages are the building blocks to help you take your first steps into the world of programming. We’ve taken two of the most powerful and versatile programming languages available, Python and C++, and broken them down into bite-sized tutorials and guides to help you learn how they work, and how to make them work for you.
Learn how to install them, print simple messages to the screen, ask for user input and manipulate the data to produce amazing results. By the end of this book you will understand how Python and C++ work, and what potential lies beyond.
Ready? Let’s get programming!
