If you want to make games or other software programs for your Windows PC, you may try to start with a programming language like Java, C++, or Visual Basic - but their "syntax" (how commands must be written) can be very challenging. You will also need to learn how to use a complex "development environment" like Visual Studio or Eclipse - great for big projects, but not for getting started. Phrogram has dozens of sample programs that show you how the code works. Or you can try software that minimizes programming code and uses graphic objects in a "drag-&-drop" environment, like Alice and Scratch. These products are designed for very young learners, of if you want your program to tell a story, but they won't show you how to do the things that working programmers do every day - and that's what makes Phrogram different. This is a resource I have been looking for and can't wait to use it and leave my feedback.
