Java Programming for Kids, Parents and Grandparents

This free Java e-book is written for kids from 11 to 80 years old and for school computer teachers, parents who want to get their child into the world of computer programming and college students who are looking for a supplement to overcomplicated textbooks.


First chapters of the book will end with simple game-like programs with detailed instructions on how to make them work. Also we are going to create a calculator that looks and works similarly to the one that you have in your computer. In the second part of the book we’ll create together game programs Tic-Tac-Toe and Ping-Pong.

    Im at chapter 7 right now, and i dont really see how kids that are 11 year old can understand stuff like this? Im 25 and at some points i really had a hard time to understand. But all in all its a good book.
