Right, which book is number one on Amazon in the programming category?
Some fancy Java guide the size of a small house? A Python book to make PhD computer scientists cry? Some new language you must learn but have never heard of?
Why am I reviewing a kid’s book? Long answer follows. Application security & best practice programming is vital in cyber security. I don’t know a lot about programming – I’m covering that off at university next year. Plus, I like the web & want to focus on it.
Enter this book. It’s a colourful work book, with a tonne of explanations, illustrations & exercises. It’s clear, concise & the story is very funny.
I was stunned by the scope of this book & how it effortlessly introduces the core skills any web developer needs.
But, on top of that you have talk of iframes, APIs & wireframing….what more could you ask? Plus, the exercises are fun & part of a funny little story that carries on through the book.
I can’t recommend this enough. If you’re worried about picking up kid’s book – forget it – we all learn in different ways & sometimes approaching like a kid is perfect. For them, learning needs to be interesting & fun. This cool book is both. It’s also backed up by a snazzy website.
