Now, I am not much for reading. In fact, I stopped going to the library once my teacher told me I had to pick out a book that didn’t have pictures between the text (poor little me). However, this Learn to Program book I was finding quite enjoyable. I was learning to program from the ground up. I started with puts “Hello world!” and my computer would read back to me “Hello world!” I was fascinated and thoroughly addicted to reading about the next program to build. I was also intrigued by how simple it seemed to write code. Although these applications I was writing had no real world purpose, I looked at it like math; of course I will never use the Pythagorean theorem in my everyday life BUT its the process of the formula that sticks. This book isn’t going to teach you to be a six-figure programmer, but it will give you the framework for starting your city brick by brick.
