來自Eric Wang的鼓勵


阿吉是在2005年認識Eric Wang教授,當時他是來台灣演講與宣傳他的新書,之後阿吉也與Eric保持密切的聯絡。

本書在開發的過程中,多次徵詢Eric的意見並已經開始思考下一本書的內容,今早起來就收到Eric的鼓勵,真的很感動!

I have been using LEGO bricks in my freshmen engineering course for over a decade. I don’t use them because I am a huge fan of LEGO, but rather because I a think they are the appropriate educational tool to use. Students have fun and are engaged while learning a computer programming language at the same time. And once students learn the fundamentals of computer programming using the NXT, they can apply those skills to programming other devices.

I first met David when he was still in school. He had the laborious task of translating my first book into Chinese. Later he also served as my translator during several seminars I gave in Taiwan. Thus, I was delighted when David told me about the NXT book he had written. It is through the efforts of individuals like David that educators and enthusiasts benefit.

This book is all about programming the NXT with NXC, which is a popular open-source programming language based on C. David not only covers the nuts and bolts of programming with NXC, but he also provides details on using each of the sensors (including several HiTechnic sensors). This book fills an important void for the ever-growing Chinese LEGO community. I hope you will join me in applauding David’s efforts.

Enjoy and keep playing.
