The Core Concepts of Computer Programming
When it comes to programming, having a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts can significantly improve both student engagement and their chances of being successful in the long run. Starting Out with Programming Logic and Design, now in its Fourth Edition, is a language-independent introductory programming book that is ideal for either a programming course that serves as a precursor to an introductory programming course or the first unit of an introductory programming course. The text covers fundamental subjects such as data types, variables, input, output, control structures, modules, functions, arrays, files, object-oriented concepts, graphical user interface development, and event-driven programming, among other things.
The text is simple and straightforward, making it easy for any student to understand even the most difficult ideas, despite its orientation toward novices. In this edition, Gaddis uses updated and modern examples to help students become familiar with the material.
