Starting Out with Programming Logic and Design makes complex programming concepts accessible to every student. It is a language-independent introduction, teaching you programming concepts and logic without assuming any previous programming experience. Designed for beginners, the text is clear and approachable, making complex concepts accessible to every student. It is ideal for a programming logic course taught as a precursor to a language-specific introductory programming course, or for the first part of an introductory programming course.

In the 5th Edition Gaddis focuses on current languages, providing code snippet examples and complete programs for each. The text uses updated, contemporary examples to familiarize students with models and logical thought processes used in programming without further complicating them with language syntax. By using easy-to-understand pseudocode, flowcharts and other tools, Gaddis illustrates how to design the logic of programs.
