Welcome to Code Like a Girl, where you'll get started on the adventure of coding with cool projects and step-by-step tips, from the co-author of the bestselling The Daring Book for Girls.
We’re about to high-dive into Python, an honest-to-goodness grown-up programming language that runs nearly a third of the Internet. Sites like Pinterest, Instagram, Dropbox, Google and YouTube have been built on Python. At newspapers, journalists use Python to track down statistics and numbers so they can report powerful stories.
I promised to send up a warning flare when things got harder, so here it is. Python is a language that real developers use, and there is definitely a transition from Scratch to this kind of code. If it feels hard at first, that’s okay. It is hard. Hard is good. Hard is awesome! You feel like a hero when you’re done. I’ve tried to forge an upbeat path into Python for us, but if it’s tough to wrap your mind around all of it, don’t think you’ve become dumb overnight and that you’re stressing over something simple. Promise me you’ll keep going.
Coding is about creativity, self-expression, and telling your story. It's solving problems and being curious, building things, making the world a better place, and creating a future. It's about you: whoever you are, wherever you're at, whatever you want.
Nearly everything you encounter on a screen is made from code. You see, with code you can have an idea and put it into action: it's your voice and your vision. From the outside, tech and code may seem puzzling and mysterious, but when you get through the door and past the first few beginner steps and your code starts to work, it feels like magic.
In this book, you'll learn how to: - Code with Scratch–projects like making a dog walk through the park, sending your friend a card, and devising a full-scoring game! - Build your own computer–really! - Create your own digital fortune-teller, with the Python language. - Make your own smartphone gloves. - Make light-up bracelets. - Code a motion sensor that tells you when someone enters your room. - And lots more!
