I have been a professional programmer for the past 27 years and a part-time computer science professor for the past seven years. Programming is easy for me now, but I still remember the early days when it was a struggle. What I lacked was a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts found in most programming languages. I did not know how or why to use a loop or selection statement. I did not understand the true value of arrays. More importantly, I did not know how to combine the different concepts to complete a programming task. The Super Simple Programming Book is for anyone who wants to learn programming. No prior programming experience is required. This book teaches fundamental programming concepts through short, simple Python programs. It explains programming in a way that is easy to understand. My college students often tell me that programming is so much easier when I explain it to them. I have taken that approach while writing this book. The goal of this book is not to teach you everything about Python programming. Instead, the goal is to teach you how to program. Then you will be able to practice programming on your own and become a better programmer. Lastly, you can do this. There is nothing mystifying about programming. If you can follow instructions, think logically, or complete a puzzle, you can write a program. It is easier than you think. You just need to understand the basics. The Super Simple Programming Book will teach you the basics and make them seem simple.
