New book released: Computational Thinking

I’m very pleased to announce my book, Computational Thinking: A beginner’s guide to problem-solving and programming, has just been released by the British Computer Society.

book cover

What’s it about? Here’s the blurb:

Computational thinking (CT) is a timeless, transferable skill that enables you to think more clearly and logically, as well as a way to solve specific problems. With this book you’ll learn to apply computational thinking in the context of software development to give you a head start on the road to becoming an experienced and effective programmer. Beginning with the core ideas of computational thinking, with this book you’ll build up an understanding of the practical problem-solving approach and explore how computational thinking aids good practice in programming, complete with a full guided example.

More information about the book is on this site’s books page.

It’s available to buy via the BCS Shop, or on Amazon.

I’d like to thank everyone at the BCS who helped make this book possible.
