"Alice was designed from the ground up to make contemporary programming concepts far easier to teach - and to learn. In this book, Alice's creators and key innovators offer a complete full-color introduction to the Alice 3D interactive graphics programming environment." "Students will discover how Alice blends traditional problem-solving techniques with Hollywood-style storyboarding. They will create programs by dragging and dropping program elements in a mouse-based editor that prohibits syntax errors. They'll see exactly what their programs are doing, as they create simple 3D movies and games they can appreciate regardless of their backgrounds. This book supports either an objects-first or an objects-early approach, with an optional early introduction to events, giving students a solid foundation for mastering any object-oriented language, from Java to C++ and C#." "Alice has been proven to help computer science departments improve student motivation and reduce attrition, especially among underrepresented groups. Using Alice and this book, far more students can successfully take the first step towards a rewarding career in computing and technology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
