A is for Array is the book for programmers and their successors. Created by a father for his three young children, this beautifully illustrated book will captivate your children and open their eyes to the incredible world of programming.
I love to code. I have 3 awesome (young) kids. Before my first one was born, I thought to myself, “I need to figure out a way to use her language to illuminate mine.”A is for Array was born that day. It has been a few years since then.
My kids often come in to my office and each time are greeted with a few pieces of candy and/or snacks. When my oldest daughter was asked what it is that I do, she responded with, “He goes to work and eats candy and plays on his computer.” The dream was reawakened.
I am sure that many of you guys (and gals) share similar experiences, hearing whispers of “code monkey” and the like from friends, family, and curious coworkers. Well, A is for Array is here to save the day.
Full of beautiful illustrations illuminating the concepts that programmers work with daily, the book aims to give your loved ones an insight into your world.
Share this book with your little programmers-to-be.
