Scratch is a fun, free, beginner-friendly programming environment where you connect blocks of code to build programs. While most famously used to introduce kids to programming, Scratch can make computer science approachable for people of any age. Rather than type countless lines of code in a cryptic programming language, why not use colorful command blocks and cartoon sprites to create powerful scripts? In Learn to Program with Scratch, author Majed Marji uses Scratch to explain the concepts essential to solving real-world programming problems. The labeled, color-coded blocks plainly show each logical step in a given script, and with a single click, you can even test any part of your script to check your logic. You’ll learn how to: * Harness the power of repeat loops and recursion * Use if/else statements and logical operators to make decisions * Store data in variables and lists to use later in your program * Read, store, and manipulate user input * Implement key computer science algorithms like a linear search and bubble sort Hands-on projects will challenge you to create an Ohm’s law simulator, draw intricate patterns, program sprites to mimic line-following robots, create arcade-style games, and more! Each chapter is packed with detailed explanations, annotated illustrations, guided examples, lots of color, and plenty of exercises to help the lessons stick. Learn to Program with Scratch is the perfect place to start your computer science journey, painlessly.

This is a Packt Beginners Guide, which means it focuses on practical examples and has a friendly approach, with the opportunity to learn by experiment and play. We work through the project tutorials one block of code at a time, and we periodically pause to reflect on the relationship between our code blocks, our project, and Scratch programming in general. As you work through the book, you are encouraged to experiment with the concepts presented. As each chapter in the book progresses, the topics get increasingly more complex. Scratch is a teaching language, so it's ideal for people who want to learn how to program or teach others how to program. Educators and parents will learn how to program using Scratch, so they can use Scratch to teach the latest learning skills to their students and children. No previous computer programming knowledge is required. You only need to know how to perform basic tasks on a computer and this book will teach the rest. You can then use it as a platform to learn more advanced programming languages. Parents, stuck with a child who wants to play video games all night? Make a new rule. He can only play a video game if he programs the game first.

Start from scratch and learn both topics simultaneously by writing 20+ hacking programs About This Video Write a remote keylogger that can register all keystrokes and send them by email Interact with files using Python (read, write, and modify them) Convert Python programs to binary executables that work on Windows, OS X, and Linux Convert evil files into Trojans that work and function just like any other file type such as an image or a PDF Write a program that can discover hidden paths in a website Send requests to websites and analyze responses Write a program that can map a website and discover all links, subdomains, files, and directories Run dictionary attacks and guess login information on login pages Write a program that can discover weaknesses in websites In Detail This course is highly practical but doesn't neglect the theory, so we start by covering some basics for ethical hacking and Python programming, installing the required software, and then starting to program straightaway. The course is divided into several sections, each of which aims to achieve a specific goal; the goal is usually to hack into a specific system, so we start by learning how this system works and its weaknesses. Then you'll learn how to write a Python program to exploit these weaknesses and hack the system; as we write the program, the author will teach you Python programming from scratch covering one topic at a time. Thus, by the end of the course, you will have written several ethical hacking programs by yourself (see below) via backdoors, keyloggers, credential harvesters, network hacking tools, website hacking tools; and the list goes on. You'll also have a deep understanding of how computer systems work, how to model problems, and how to design an algorithm to solve problems and implement the solution using Python. So, by the end of the course, you'll have the programming skills to write any program even if it has nothing to do with hacking, but you'll learn to program by programming hacking tools!

Teach yourself to code with Exciting Projects DESCRIPTION Software development is a two-step process: 1. Solve the problem logically, and 2. Translate the logic into syntax of a programming language. First step is very helpful in developing our logical capacity. The second step is about remembering the language syntax and knowing its use. A good artisan should be adroit in using his tools. But it is his creative thinking, and not the usage of his tools, that makes him a good artisan. Similarly, a good coder should know how to use a programming language, but his problem-solving abilities and logical capacity makes him a good programmer. In most advanced programming languages, you first go thru the tiring installations, acclimatize yourself with nuances of the IDE and remember complex syntaxes, before you can write your first program. Many students lose their interest in software development because of this infrastructure work and never experience the magic! Scratch programming, on the other hand, has a bare-minimum syntax and is very easy to start. This book is an attempt to enhance our logical abilities using Scratch as a tool. KEY FEATURES Book shows how Scratch platform can be useful in not just getting started on programming, but also in brain development and logic building. Book covers the entire Scratch programming with a lot of examples from different areas. Strengthens the foundations, as detailed explanation of programming language concepts are given.. Lists down all the important points that you need to know related to various topics in an organized manner. Prepares you for coding related interview and theoretical questions. Provides In depth explanation of complex topics and Questions. WHAT WILL YOU LEARN Understand what is Scratch, who should use it, what all can be done with Scratch. Create and execute your first scratch project. To play sounds and to make your actors dance in a project Programming tool to simulate decision making. WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR K12 students should read it to enhance their brain-power. Parent should read it to help your children. Teachers should read it to develop educational aids. Student of computer science should pick this book to learn about all programming constructs, and also get introduced to many computer science concepts like Multi-threading. It is a small book, but there is something for everyone in this book Table of Contents 1. The Environment 2. My First Project-Events and Motions 3. Scratching more- Sounds & Costumes 4. Branching 5. Looping 6. Having my Own Data 7. Scratch For Logic Building 8. A Sneak peek into Scratch 3.0
