Computer savvy kids and can be found surfing the web, chatting with friends, downloading music, and playing games—all at the same time. Many, however, want to do more. Not only do they want to use computers to stay connected to the world, they want to understand what makes them work, and they want to make computers work for them; they want to learn programming. Warren and Carter Sande, a father and son team, created just the book to get them started.Hello World! Second Edition is a fun, easy-to-use guide with copious illustrations and engaging examples. It takes the reader on a playful tour of basic programming concepts and then puts those concepts together to make fun and useful programs. It uses Python, a programming language that is one of the easiest to read, write, and understand.Like the first edition., Hello World! Second Edition is not just for kids. While the tone is light and engaging, it doesn't "talk down" to the reader, and beginners of any age will love its readability and sense of humor. Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

Warren Sande is an Electronic Systems Engineer who uses Python (and other languages) in his work, and also uses it to help teach his son about computers and programming. He holds a degree in Electronic Systems Engineering from the University of Regina, Saskatchewan as well as a Diploma in Communication Arts, specializing in Broadcasting, from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. He has taught introductory software courses to computer novices.

Carter Sande is a bright, curious, energetic, thoughtful, and silly 8-year-old who loves computers, playing the piano, and his little sister. He has been playing and experimenting with computers from a young age. He is also interested in Pokemon, virtual pets, and magic tricks.
