This picture book, A Day in Code, is not an ordinary programming book. It uses simple C programs to describe situations in a continuous story about a fun-filled day. The full-page illustrations next to the code pages show the situations. The code is also explained below each program. In contrast to a typical introductory program that outputs a mundane value, a program in this book will output the number of pizzas left over after a pizza party.
All the programs in the book can be compiled with a C compiler and run on one's computer. Beginners will enjoy learning core programming concepts and C syntax by reading this fun picture book.
