Product description

Review

""Thanks for "Learn to Program." My 10 year old son picked it up tonight, opened up my old MBP, and just started going at it. It's fun to see him so excited about something that I love and am lucky enough to make a living at. Though my son is in our school's gifted and talented program, they have not yet delved into computers in much detail. "Learn to Program" is turning out to be a fun way to share my excitement about programming with him.""--Scott Meade

About the Author

Chris Pine first discovered the programming language Ruby in early 2001 and immediately began using it to build tools for his day job: programming computer games. After hours, he volunteered with gifted children teaching them advanced mathematics. With Ruby, he began to teach his students programming as well. Once he saw how easily his students learned advanced programming concepts in this environment, he decided to expand his teaching materials into a book. Chris enjoys board games and juggling, and lives with his darling wife and two darling children in darling Oslo, Norway. He is very happy.
