Best App to learn Programming/Coding!When this first went up as a Flash App in PC, I went ahead and got it to help me with my coding skills, and plus I like puzzles, and even though I’m not into any Programming anymore this still is a really great puzzle app. Please add more levels and functionality!”

light bot puzzle app review 2

Challenging and fun I initially introduced the game to my son last year, when he was 7. He liked it but found it a bit too challenging after the first 4 or 5 levels. I probably should have tried the jr version first. I didn’t push it but he recently came back to it on his own. He is currently obsessed with it, which has me delighted as I think this is a brilliant app – the cute design & gameplay cleverly weave in the lessons, and being able to toggle the “gender” of the robot is a nice touch..”

light bot puzzle app review

Great game! Does exactly what it says on the tin! Its perfect for a kick starter for picking up the whole basic concept of programming.”

light bot puzzle app review

Fun puzzles for learning to code. Ideal for beginner coders. It would be great if the music could be turned off and keep sound effects..”

light bot puzzle app review 3

Mind bending puzzles A touch of programming logic and great level design make a really good game. Beware, it gets challenging for adults 😉 I’d have liked a “slow-mo” speed option at times.”

Light Bot Google Android App review

Very fun As a comp sci student, I had loads of fun with this. There could have been more levels but for someone new to programming it should be plenty.”

Programming Tutorials – C++ : Android

C++ udemy Android app review

Description 

A first introductory course on C++ based on the book Accelerated C++

This course is for older students and beginners who want to get started writing programs in C++.

Taught by Jeremy Siek, a professor at the University of Colorado. No prior knowledge of C++ is assumed.

The course is based on the excellent textbook Accelerated C++ by Andrew Koenig and Barbara E. Moo.

Like the textbook, the course quickly dives into problem solving and making use of the C++ standard library, including strings, vectors, and lists. The emphasis is on teaching you the parts of C++ that you will most likely need in your day-to-day programming.
