"Probably the whole Start Programming book saga was one of the more costly Acorn mistakes - and it's no wonder there was a market for 'better' guides to the Acorn Electron than this!"
Electron User Group


If you've bought one of the new Acorn Electrons and you're a stranger to computing, then this book is the friend you need to hold your hand through a bewildering new world.

Start Programming With The Electron provides a gentle introduction to what your new micro can do. It takes a structured approach to programming techniques, and new terms are explained as they are introduced. There's also a handy glossy of terms at the end of each chapter.

Once you've mastered all the basic with this book you'll be in a better position to make good use of the mass of useful information in the User Guide.

Features include:

  1. problem solving
  2. sound
  3. graphics
  4. games
  5. using a 'turtle'
  6. arithmetic on the Electron

At the back are complete listings of the programs used in the book.

Have fun!
