Hello World! I'm talking about learning to program.

Traditionally, the first program you write is to display the words "Hello World."

Usually, displaying text is the simplest program you can write.

But it means a lot!:

  • It means that you have downloaded and installed the software, or figured out where there is a computer lab with the software.
  • You have figured out how to run the software,
  • how to put in code,
  • and how to run the program.
  • You have probably also figured out how to debug, or fix errors.

After you get the program to work, you should close it, and then try to recreate the program without looking at any books or notes.

Make sure that you understand all of the steps. Next, you should make a few changes; get it to do something a little bit different.

If you do that with each example, you are on your way to learning to program.

It is a great adventure! Enjoy!

Getting Started

If you have never programmed you might enjoy an hour of code. Take some time to watch the videos and do the activities.
