About the book

Get Coding! is the essential guide to computer coding for kids. Computer coding is a key skill and is now part of the National Curriculum for children aged 5+. This fun and exciting book teaches you how to code using the three most important programming languages in the world: HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

In each of the book’s six missions develop new coding skills by working through simple step-by-step instructions and bite-sized chunks of information. Then test your new programming knowledge by coding your own projects, which include a website, app, game, password and map. Your coding will help Professor Bairstone, Dr Day and Ernest to keep the Monk Diamond safe from a gang of dangerous jewel thieves.

All you need is the book and a computer (PC or Mac) that’s connected to the Internet. The book is suitable for beginners with no previous experience of coding. It’s aimed at kids aged 9+.
