This is actually our first book; Inedo usually publishes tools for Enterprise DevOps like ProGet, Otter, BuildMaster and more! We love when we get work on projects like this however. To learn more about these, or about what we normally do, stop by our main site.

The Book

Programming Languages ABC++ is an alphabet book all about coding that’s fun for both toddlers and their grown up counterparts. It’s not about teaching a baby to make a program, that’s silly. It’s about creating a way for software developers to connect with the kids in their life. Share a little about what they do, in a context that the kids will actually enjoy.

Thanks Dudes

The Authors

Michael and Martine Dowden are geeky parents, and the pursuit of geeky parents everywhere is to thoroughly inundate their children in that geekiness. But how? What they needed was a delivery system; enter Programming Languages ABC++. The book is a combination of their love of illustration, programming, and trivial tidbits, one that assures their children’s inevitable slide into nerddom.

Thanks Dudes
