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.

About the Author

Doug Wright
Doug Wright

Doug Wright taught himself how to program from the myriad of tools and resources available on the world wide web. Like many programmers today, he fell in love with the expressiveness and simplicity of the Ruby language. After realizing there were no children's books about Ruby, he decided to write one himself. Currently he works as a software engineer at CommitChange, a company that provides software solutions for nonprofits.
