I’ve recently received a few books to review (and to share at STEM events and workshops) from NoStarch Press.

No Starch Press books for review

 

Both of these titles draw me back to my youth when I was first getting in all things “computery” and electronic.

I can remember a little LadyBird book Ladybird Learnabout Simple Electronics by Kris Cochrane and dreaming about building all the circuits contained therein.

I don’t think I even got as far as making a single one of them, but I ended up with an Electronics Engineering degree so I suppose it served its purpose.

The second book, Mission Python, reminds of the copy out program books which you used to get for the micro computers of the 80’s (the ZX Spectrum, BBC micro, Commodore etc.).  This is still on my review list, so I hope to have a review for this at a later stage.

Enjoy!

I recently received a copy of No-Starch Press to take a look at, as a huge fan of “Python for Kids”, I was very keen to take a look!
