Learning Java Programming in Clara‘s World (Springer)
Friday, 25 June 2021

This book introduces the key concepts of Java programming through the eyes of a small ladybug called Clara. According to the authors, Anton Bogdanovych and Tomas Trescak, Clara is a fun and extremely obedient insect, whose journey starts with limited skills. Readers learn programming by making Clara move around and manipulate objects in her world. As the book progresses, Clara becomes more intelligent and acquires new skills and (together with readers) learns by tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges.


The book explains programming concepts through real-world problems such as launching rockets into space, automatically patching potholes, developing a vacuum cleaner robot, simulating projectile motion, dynamically avoiding obstacles, delivering mail, etc. Every chapter of the book starts by presenting a challenge and then continues to explain new programming concepts with the focus on tackling this challenge.
