Kids and Programming

September 13th, 2006

There’s rather a good post over at Peter Cooper’s blog, on teaching Kids programming.

I won’t bother reprinting my comment here, you can see it over at Peter’s website. Needless to say, I think that Ruby should be the language of choice for introducing people into the field.
