About the Book
Twelve year old Eliza discovers she has the power to change a machine’s code just by touch. When the government’s evil artificial intelligence takes her brother away, she uses her new ability to fight back. Now she's on the run as an outlaw and her only hope to save him is to find the Underground Programmer’s Academy. She needs to learn how to control her powers and fast. If she doesn’t get her brother back in time, his brain could be scrambled forever.
Together, with her friends, Eliza sets out on an adventure that involves learning code, fighting robots, and finding out how strong she can be.
Code Shifter is an adventure book with real programming code and concepts for 8-13 year olds.
Will you learn programming from reading the book?
Maybe. Although the programming language, (Clojure), and concepts are all real, the main purpose of the book is not teach programming directly but to embed it directly into the story line and have it become natural. With gentle exposure, children can pick up elements that they are interested in a non-threatening way, laying the groundwork for the future. Any programming concepts they pick up is completely a side effect.
Is this part of a series?
It has series potential but is a stand alone book. Roughly translated, that means if there is enough interest, we might write some more.
