            Learning to code has never been easier than with this innovative visual guide to computer programming for beginners. Coding skills are in high demand and the need for programmers is still growing. However, taking the first steps in learning more about this complex subject may see...m daunting and many of us feel left behind by the coding revolution. By using a graphic method to break code into small chunks, this book brings essential skills within reach. Terms such as algorithm, variable, string, function, and loop are all explained. The book also looks at the main coding languages that are out there, outlining the main applications of each language, so you can choose the right language for you. Individual chapters explore different languages, with practical programming projects to show you how programming works. You'll learn to think like a programmer by breaking a problem down into parts, before turning those parts into lines of code. Short, easy-to-follow steps then show you, piece by piece, how to build a complete program. There are challenges for you to tackle to build your confidence before moving on. Written by a team of expert coders and coding teachers, the Beginner's Step-by-Step Coding Course is the ideal way to get to grips with coding.

            John Maeda is one of the world's preeminent thinkers on technology and design, and in How to Speak Machine, he offers a set of simple laws that govern not only the computers of today, but the unimaginable machines of the future. Machines are already more powerful than we can comp...rehend, and getting more powerful at an exponential pace. Once set in motion, algorithms never tire. And when a program's size, speed and endlessness combine with its ability to learn and transform itself, the outcome can be unpredictable and dangerous. Take the seemingly instant transformation of Microsoft's chatbot into a hate-spewing racist, or how crime-predicting algorithms reinforce racial bias. How To Speak Machine provides a coherent framework for today's product designers, business leaders and policymakers to grasp this brave new world. Drawing on his wide-ranging experience from engineering to computer science to design, Maeda shows how businesses and individuals can identify opportunities afforded by technology to make world-changing and inclusive products while avoiding the pitfalls inherent to the medium.

            Getting Started with Camera Raw: How to make better pictures using Photoshop and Photoshop Elements
             

            Getting Started with Camera Raw: How to make better pictures using Photoshop and Photoshop Elements (Paperback, 2nd edition)

            By Long, Ben

            Not long ago the Raw format was limited to high-end digital SLR cameras--meaning fine-art and professional photographers were just about the only people taking advantage of it. Not so today. Now that Raw capability is included on low-end dSLR's and some point-and-shoot cameras, s...hutterbugs of all stripes are eager to start taking advantage of RAW's greater editing flexibility to produce better images. This guide is the place to start. In these pages, veteran author Ben Long begins at the beginning, explaining exactly what Raw is and why photographers should use it. He then describes the theory, shooting, and image editing practices needed to work with Raw files. Ben also provides an overview of software used to convert raw files and a thorough explanation of how to use the latest versions of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements to edit Raw images. Some cool Camera Raw tricks, tips for shooting for Raw format, and a glossary of important terms round out the offering.
