The MagPi Team, "Learn to code with Scratch"
2016 | ISBN-10: N/A | 90 pages | PDF | 10 MB
oding doesn't just have to be about typing in line after line of gobbledygook. Created by the boffins at MIT, Scratch enables
anyone - children and adults alike - to start programming within minutes, without any prior knowledge. You simply drag and drop various code blocks and link them together like jigsaw pieces to form logical scripts, unobstructed by confusing
jargon and tricky syntax. Even better, Scratch is included as standard in the Raspbian operating system for the tiny Raspberry Pi computer. It can even be used with the Pi's GPIO pins to interact with electronic components and sensors.
In this book, we'll help you start coding with Scratch, guiding you step by step through the process of creating all sorts of projects: games, animations, quizzes, electronics circuits, and more. It'll be educational and also a lot of fun.
