About the Book

Want to learn programming but don't know where to start?

This book will help demistify the basic principles in every programming language. No computer science degree required.

Written for kids and adults, Ruby Kin will show you how programming is nothing more than instructions you give your computer. We'll break down the concepts used in all modern programming languages, in the following ten chapters:

  • What is Programming?
  • Numbers
  • Strings
  • Variables
  • If and Else
  • Loops
  • Collections
  • Methods
  • Enumerables
  • Files

There are practice questions at each chapter and illustrations throughout the book.
