Overview

From the respected instructor and author Paul Addison, PRINCIPLES OF PROGRAM DESIGN: PROBLEM SOLVING WITH JAVASCRIPT presents the fundamental concepts of good program design, illustrated and reinforced by hands-on examples using JavaScript. Why JavaScript? It simply illustrates the programming concepts explained in the book, requires no special editor or compiler, and runs in any browser. Little or no experience is needed because the emphasis is on learning by doing. There are examples of coding exercises throughout every chapter, varying in length and representing simple to complex problems. This book encourages you to think in terms of the logical steps needed to solve a problem, and you can take these skills with you to any programming language in the future. To help reinforce concepts, each chapter has a chapter summary, review questions, hand-on activities, and a case study hat you build on in each chapter.
