This title has been used to teach beginning and experienced programmers in over 100 higher-education institutions, both nationally and internationally. Designed in a user-friendly format, this new edition continues its focus of providing a clear understanding of how leisure experiences are a direct basis for program development. Based on the theoretical model The Program Development Cycle; step-by-step directions take readers from understanding their agencies' cultures to implementing follow-up analysis for their programs. In addition, skill-building exercise and examples are included in each chapter to aid the reader in becoming a successful programmer. The book is also used as a resource for in-service development of current employees and as a desk reference for professional programmers.
