Learning to program: by example.

About the Book

The book is an introduction to programming using the hangman game as example. Le livre est une introduction à la programmation en utilisant le jeu du bonhomme pendu comme exemple.

The development of the game happens as would a real software project. Le développement du jeu est fait de la même manière qu'un développement d'un véritable logiciel.

La traduction française est un élément essentiel et apparaît en vis à vis du texte anglais. One goal was to include the French version of the book therefore the French text appears side by side of the English text.
