The Trick Of The Mind: Programming and Computational Thought (I/O Press)
Wednesday, 24 November 2021

Programmers think differently from non-programmers, they see and solve problems in a way that the rest of the world doesn't. In this book Mike James takes programming concepts and explains what the skill involves and how a programmer goes about it. In each case, Mike looks at how we convert a dynamic process into a static text that can be understood by other programmers and put into action by a computer. If you're a programmer, his intent is to give you a clearer understanding of what you do so you value it even more.

This book has been written with three audiences in mind:

  • Those who have no immediate plans to learn a programming language but want to know why there is so much emphasis on being able to code. They will discover that knowing even a bit about programming makes them see the world in a different, and better, way.
  • Those who are preparing to leap onto the coding bandwagon. This book will help them over the initial hurdles and give them a good grounding for whatever programming language they decide to learn first.
  • Those who already write code, either as a hobby or professionally. They will appreciate the deeper ideas that underpin what they do.
