Visual Basic for Kids : A Step by Step Computer Programming Tutorial Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
VISUAL BASIC FOR KIDS is a beginning step-by-step programming tutorial consisting of 10 chapters explaining (in simple, easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Visual Basic Windows application. Students learn about project design, the Visual Basic toolbox, and many elements of the BASIC language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects for students to build and try. These projects include a number guessing game, a card game, an allowance calculator, a drawing program, a state capitals game, Tic-Tac-Toe and even a simple video game.
VISUAL BASIC FOR KIDS is presented using a combination of over 450 pages of color notes and actual Visual Basic examples. This teacher or parent facilitated material should be understandable to kids aged 12 and up. No programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using a computer operating system (simple editing, file maintenance, understanding directory structures, working on the Internet) is expected.
VISUAL BASIC FOR KIDS requires a Microsoft Windows operating system and the free Community Edition or Professional Edition of Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 (or greater) available from Microsoft. The Visual Basic source code solutions and all needed multimedia files are included in the compressed download file available from the Publisher's website (KidwareSoftware.com) after book registration.
