Thanks for writing an introductory Java book which gives some good OOP basics and general programming background. I have been a systems internals programmer but not OO, and have been considering learning Java and have been lurking The Java Ranch for a while now.
I'm also toying with the idea of what it would take to teach Java to kids -- my guess is that middle school would be the earliest appropriate age. My questions: - Do you have a recommended list of pre-requisites one should consider when thinking about teaching Java (and programming in general) to kids? - Any pointers to specific areas in the book that are particularly relevant to teaching Java and programming to complete newcomers, such as kids?
Thanks, and best of luck with your book sales! KT [ April 26, 2007: Message edited by: Ilja Preuss ]
