The National Curriculum for primary and secondary schools in England makes it compulsory for all children to be taught coding.


One of the most popular coding languages is PYTHON which is both powerful and easy to learn. While many schools and colleges use Windows and Apple desktop and laptop computers, at home many children, older students ,parents and grandparents may only use tablets and smartphones. Fortunately, PYTHON programs can be coded on both Android and Apple tablets and smartphones allowing children to practise their coding skills at home. PYTHON programs can then easily be transferred between the different types of computer available at home and school.


While there are many books covering PYTHON coding on Windows and Apple computers, the above book will probably be the first to cover coding on iPads and iPhones.


The book will explain, at an elementary level, the basic concepts of computers and computer coding / programming before explaining how to download and install the necessary FREE PYTHON software on iPads and iPhones. The book then describes in plain English the basics of coding in PYTHON, followed by saving and running the code and transferring to other types of computer.
