Swfk - Snake Wrangling for Kids (Learning to Program with Python)
"Snake Wrangling for Kids" is a printable electronic book, for children 8 years and older, who would like to learn computer programming. It covers the very basics of programming, and uses the Python 3 programming language to teach the concepts. There are 3 different versions of the book (one for Mac, one for Linux and one for Windows). There have been around 19,000 downloads, as of September 2009. There is a French edition (see swfk-fr), a Spanish edition (see swfk-es), a German edition (see swfk-de), and an Italian version (currently in progress, see swfk-it). Please note: this is a self-edited (obviously unpublished) manuscript (with help from feedback from the Python community), and as such may not be quite as polished as I would like. Feedback is welcome, and Iâ€™ll update the book whenever necessary. If your kids are having trouble understanding something, please let me know, and Iâ€™ll use the feedback to hopefully make improvements. All updates will be announced here (or the feed subscription is http://www.briggs.net.nz/log/feed).
