Coding for Beginners in Easy Steps instructs readers how to write code to create their own computer programs. It contains separate chapters demonstrating how to store information in data structures, how to control program flow using control structures, and how to create re-usable blocks of code in program functions. There are complete step-by-step example programs that demonstrate each aspect of coding, together with screenshots that illustrate the actual output when each program has been executed. It begins by explaining how to easily create a programming environment on the readers' own computer, so they can quickly begin to create their own working programs by copying the book's examples.

After demonstrating the essential building blocks of computer programming it describes how to code powerful algorithms and demonstrates how to code classes for Object Oriented Programming (OOP). The examples throughout this book feature the popular Python programming language but additionally the final chapter demonstrates a comparison example in the C, C++, and Java programming languages to give the reader a rounded view of computer coding. The code in the listed steps within the book is colour-coded to precisely match the default colour-coding of the Python IDLE editor, making it easier for beginners to grasp.
