How to Think Like A Programmer Summary

How to Think Like A Programmer: Problem Solving for the Bewildered by Paul Vickers (Northumbria University)

How to Think Like a Programmer is a bright, accessible, fun read describing the mindset and mental methods of programmers. Anticipating the problems that students have through the character of Brian the Bewildered Wildebeest, the slower pace required for this approach is made interesting and engaging by hand-drawn sketches, frequent (paper-based) activities and the everyday tasks (e.g. coffee making) used as a basis of worked examples. How to Think Like a Programmer provides a fun and accessible way to learn the mental models needed to approach computational programmable problems. This edition is printed in black and white.
