Coding For Dummies
Coding For Dummies (9781118951309) is now being published as Coding For Dummies (9781119293323). While this version features an older Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the new release and should not be considered a different product.
Online exercises developed by Codecademy, a leading online code training site, help hone coding skills and demonstrate results as you practice.
The site provides an environment where you can try out tutorials built into the text and see the actual output from your coding. You'll also gain access to end-of-chapter challenges to apply newly acquired skills to a less-defined assignment. So what are you waiting for?
- The current demand for workers with coding and computer science skills far exceeds the supply
- Teaches the foundations of web development languages in an easy-to-understand format
- Offers unprecedented opportunities to practice basic coding languages
- Readers can access online hands-on exercises and end-of-chapter assessments that develop and test their new-found skills

"Coding is everywhere – running apps on our phones, powering our favorite websites, and popping up in conversations at school and at work," said author Nikhil Abraham. "Coding For Dummies makes coding accessible by explaining the big picture and walking you through projects that you code right in your browser. I love seeing what people create and share once they start coding."
