You dona€™t need any prior experience with programming in order to gain value from this book. Considering a career change: Perhaps you are a K-12, junior college, or university student who has perhaps a bit of past programming experience, and you are pondering a full-time career as a software developer. Learning Scratch serves as an excellent diagnostic to gauge your aptitude and interest in the subject matter. Just tinkering: Maybe you are a technology buff who always wondered what work went into developing a software project. You have no real career aspirations in programming--you just enjoy tinkering and having fun. If you find that you dona€™t belong in any of the previous three classifications, then dona€™t worry about it. Set your sights on learning as much as you can and, above all else, having fun, and youa€™ll be fine!Ita#39;s one thing to have Scratch 2.0 react to the presence of a video signal; ita#39;s quite another to use video motion as a triggerable and ... is similar, though far less robust, than the Kinect sensor in the Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game consoles.
