Would You Want To Become A Top-Notched Programmer In No Time? Are You Worried About Technical Complexity Or Never Coded Before? Then Keep Reading....

Computer programming. One of the most valuable set of skills you could acquire today. How to go about it?

Let me tell you something. Based on my own experience of eight years of coding (and counting), I know that the first line of coding is the most difficult.

I’m here to make that first journey like a breeze. This is my life-long-project, recompiling a step-by-step process to study and learn any programming language, in two hours (or less).

We are talking about Java, Javascript, SQL, C++, C#, Python, PHP, and closing with HTML and CSS.

It doesn’t matter if you never wrote a line of code before, or don’t even know how to close an HTML tag. There are no needed skills to take advantage of this simplified, yet powerful guide.

If you have had some exposure to using computers and possess a basic know-how of the peripherals and I/O devices attached to the computer like keyboard, mouse and monitor, you are ready to go!

In This Book You Will Discover....

  • A simple step-by-step guide to learn any programming language in 2 hours or less
  • How to create apps and dynamic web pages with Java and Javascript fast
  • Learn how to manage databases with SQL simply and effectively
  • How to edit simple objects and video games with C++ and C#
  • How to use Python like a pro to keep any code base readable and application maintainable
  • How to develop professional front-end websites using HTML and CSS
  • How to avoid common mistakes when starting to code as a beginner (which can cost you hundreds of hours of hard work)
  • And much, much more....

So if you want to start programming today, then get this audiobook today!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying Book Transcript PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

How is this helpful?

I thought this book would outline a strategy to learn things quickly. Instead, it attempts to talk you through all of the listed language syntaxes one by one. There are far too many described screenshots to make a good audiobook, and the narrator annunciates words in an unnerving way.

5 out of 5

I liked how easy it was to follow the audiobook. Very practical and simple to understand. The audiobook's accompanying PDF was tremendously helpful in better comprehending the subject.

This audiobook will teach you the language and explain basic grammar with examples and practice tasks to ensure that you remember what you've learned. It is recommended for anyone interested in learning HTML, CSS, Java, Javascript, SQL, C++, C#, or Python.

Alvin does a fantastic job of presenting programming in general, contrasting the various programming languages, and then delving into the principles of programming - the universal concepts that apply to all languages. This audiobook, in my opinion, is read by an intelligent author who utilizes straightforward and clear language.

I bought this audible in search of a decent resource for new hires, and I was pleasantly impressed by the wealth of information contained within these pages. Anyone interested in programming will find this to be a fantastic resource.

Exceptional

This book is aimed at beginners with no previous knowledge of the word. It greatly assists you to gain a greater level of proficiency in the programming language.

Mr. Cooper is an exceptional writer. I had a minimal understanding of programming at the time. It is advantageous to know how to develop a robust code structure. In truth, I needed to brush up on my skills, and this book never disappoints; you'll learn how to code correctly from the ground up.

The material provided here is solely for educational purposes and is therefore universal. The first few chapters focus on laying a basis for program execution, writing and utilizing programs, and programming language fundamentals.

The PDF that comes with this audiobook helps me understand the material better. I would recommend it to anyone,

I highly recommend it

This is a great set that should be on every programmer's bookshelf. They look beautiful with high-quality covers as well as pages. This computer programming for beginners covers HTML and CSS, Java, JavaScript, SQL, Python, PHP, C++, and C#. I was extremely impressed with this collection. The author turns computer programming into an art form as the title suggests. You'll need to know your discrete mathematics for these books, but the depth and detail of coverage of the topics are unsurpassed. This is no book of algorithmic recipes but presents an unparalleled range of algorithms for various common tasks. Your understanding of the problem you want to solve will be stretched. You'll have to consider aspects of the problem you never even thought of. But your understanding of algorithms will be deeper, better, and broader than you had thought possible. If you're willing to make an effort to understand problems, this book will reward you. And you'll love it.

Great resource

I think this book contains a good approach for beginners without special school formation that want to begin programming. It covers the basics well and provides one with links to other great resources.

I listened to this book cover to cover which took me over 2 days, and I was extremely impressed with this collection. Cooper turns computer programming into an art form as the title suggests.

There is a lot of great information that Cooper makes interesting by stating which algorithms were remarkable discoveries and which were logical extensions of other algorithms. The analysis is much more in-depth than other authors especially with regards to run time performance.

Cooper's writing is excellent. Each sentence is clear and communicates in a way that makes computer history interesting. Itself is beautiful and informative. I wish I could give more than 5 stars for the review.

I would recommend this book to someone who is willing to grasp the concept of programming in general.

Useful especially for novices

Contains basic information that is simple to comprehend. Some people find programming extremely difficult to learn. This audiobook, on the other hand, is really useful for novices. I've learned the syntax of each computer programming language, as well as the many types of functions.

What the actual f*%#?

I was really taken in by the title of this book, but it’s awfully, awfully, narrated.

And to top it off, he is literally just reading lines of code to you. Shocking as an audiobook. I’m sure the real book is better.
