This is a very helpful article. It is basically a long list of books and links to other articles. There is one that teaches HTML and java script which would be great for designing web applications. There is even one for making android applications and it doesn't even require any code! The HTML tutorials would really be helpful since my friend and I are starting a business and making a website for it. This is a good article for anyone trying to learn any code. There is something for everyone. Im going to use this as a checklist for my next visit to my local library.
My second goal for Senior Seminar included learning basic computer programming, primarily with my Dad. But this article contained numerous helpful videos to get me started. Anything from something as simple as command prompt, all the way to c++ which is my Dad's favorite. I watched some of these videos and now have enough basic knowledge to get started on my goal to learn how to program. Anything that wasn't in the article I can learn from my Dad or just from the old fashioned trial and error method.
Students have an array of introductions to computer programming, which develops critical thinking skills "completely transferable" to other areas of learning, says Lauren Bricker, a computer-science teacher at Seattle's Lakeside School.
This article is great motivation for anyone trying to get into computer programming. Just in the first paragraph it talks about a kid who started learning how to program at 8 years old and now makes cell phone applications at 15. If he can do it at such a young age, I can surely do it now. There is a couple kids games that teach kids basic text in the article. I really wish I knew about these when I was younger, things would be a lot easier for me now. With no time for regret, I continued reading and it gave advice for highschool students. Some good books and programs were listed so I will reference them in the future. All in all, a very informative article.
