Are you thinking of learning how to program? You may have seen a movie that aroused your curiosity. Or perhaps you have come to the realization that basic programs are extremely important in technology or any other field of endeavor. With Internet search, you will find a wealth of information and resources that promise competent programming skills. I personally prefer to read hard copy books to get my information. Here are some things to keep in mind when looking for some good program books.
- Author’s Experience: Does the author have enough experience in the programming languages you want to explore? If you want to learn Java, it is useless to read a program book from C + Guru. Of course, some basics are the same, but in theory, you need an author who can relate to the language you want to learn.
- Multilingual Book: This tip goes hand in hand with the tip above. They want a good programming language based on one language. Check the directory of the book to make sure it matches what you want to learn.
- Date of publication: While many program basics remain, technology has certainly improved. Ideally, the program book they found has been published in the last two years. If you prefer the older edition, keep in mind that the program has changed a lot in recent years.
- Price: The main concern with any purchase and buying a program book is no different. The fact is that there are tons of free resources on the internet that can teach you the basics, and although I love solid coverage, I don’t pay a price for any book. It is better to try a used bookstore or search for Amazon at a discount.
- Beginner Suitable: Grab a book intended for beginners. If so, it will usually tell you exactly what to cover. Some of us are not at that stage, as the next Mark Zuckerberg wants everyone to be. Take the steps of the children and I am sure that you will do wonderful things in a short time.
If you keep these things in mind, you will be able to take them all to a programmer and be ready. You may want to look for some good book reviews to see if people have really learned from the books you plan to buy.
