Everyone who begins to learn the programming language needs a book. interval. There is no way to overcome it. You definitely have a lot of information on the internet so the lessons are complete and detailed. But nothing replaces a good book. The real problem is finding a good book at your local bookstore. You will get a lot of computer programming books. Some cream, some are really bad, some are cheap, some are expensive.
First of all, you have to decide what you learn. This is hard, believe me. There are tons (!!!) of programming languages. They all claim to be only one language from now. Everything else would become outdated. Start from one side. anyone. As long as the programming language is widely used. If you are interested in web development (like me), search for PHP. If you want to program in the Microsoft Windows environment, go to C #. It is your choice completely.
Now, was she looking for a book? The best way is to find someone you trust and actually have the book. Not a person has broadcast from someone that a computer programming book is decent. No, this will not work. Then you ask to choose the book and look at the internal pages for a while. Read two lines and decide if you understand the language used. Some authors of programming books can be anonymous on the English language. Next, look at the index. If it covers it to a large extent, then you are in business. This is a book for you.
I can give you an idea of some books. I like Oilly Reilly, Wrox books and some others. Send me a mail or comment on a specific language and I will try to see if I have a good book on it.
