Welcome to Computer Programming For Kids (CP4K)
Welcome to the Computer Programming for Kids blog! We are the co-authors of the book "Hello World! Computer Programming for Kids and Other Beginners", released in March 2009. The book is published by Manning Publications. Manning has a web site for the book, which is where you can download the software and other files related to the book. You can purchase it here, at the Manning web site. If you use this link to purchase the print book or e-book from the Manning web site, you can use the discount code aupromo40 at checkout to get a 40% discount. You can also get it through online retailers like Amazon, as well as in many retail locations such as Chapters in Canada and Barnes & Noble in the U.S. This blog is mostly about the book (for now), but anything related to computers and programming, particularly for kids and beginners, is fair game. We will post articles with extra material that didn't make it into the book, and reader feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

Carter and Warren on TV
We hosted a Book Launch party on June 24, 2009.
That day, we also did an interview on the Ottawa CTV affiliate, CJOH, with anchor Carol-Anne Meehan.
It ran on their 6:00 news. You can see it here:
You can also read the article EMC newspaper wrote about us. Reporter Sabine Gibbins talked to Carter, Warren, and illustrator Martin Murtonen the day of the launch.
We also met Martin for the first time that day. All our work together on the book had been done by e-mail and phone, even though we live in the same city!
