This six-chapter supplementary (added) text uses Alice, a three-dimensional virtual (realistic) reality authoring system, to make (attain) programming easy (cushy) and fun (recreation) for the novice (initiate) programmer. Alice was developed (matured) to help (support) teach introductory (preceding) programming (planning) techniques in a less (inferior) syntax-intensive environment, and addresses some (whatever) of the barriers that currently prevent (preclude) many users from successfully learning (acquisition) to program. By introducing core (set) programming (planning) topics such (much) as objects, methods, and variables within the context (environment) of the Alice environment, users will (module) be motivated (impelled) to continue (move) their studies in programming.
