Archive for 6. About the Textbook


image of textbook cover Here you will find resources, support and discussion related to A Web-Based Introduction to Programming. I’m the author, Mike O’Kane, and I hope this blog will be useful if you are:

  • A student taking a first programming course
  • An instructor looking to share ideas and best practices
  • Anyone who wants to learn about programming

This site will help you with installation questions, hints and suggestions if you get stuck, tutorials, and teaching ideas. You can also submit your corrections, feedback and suggestions.  Use the categories on the right to find material that interests you. Also the textbook Web site includes a range of support materials, free downloads, and general references, as well as the latest corrections.

I hope that you find the textbook useful for your purposes. If you are already using the book, what do you think about it? How is the approach working for you? What do you like and dislike? Do you have suggestions on ways to improve it?  Your feedback is very much appreciated!

Best wishes,
