Learn to program with Code Year
« on: January 05, 2012, 12:03:22 AM »
I didn't look at all the topics here, so must guess that this is a new topic.  Saw this new article in Slate about something that might be an alternative to the programming instruction here. It links to this site. A screenshot from that site is below.

I like the idea! :)

(I'd like to see programming taught starting around grade 4 or so though. It builds logic skills.)

Hmmm, I wonder if that would have helped my logic skills??  But 4th grade was a very long time ago.   ;)

Too cool!

I'm going to suggest this to a couple of non-tech retirees I know that keep saying they always wanted to learn how to program.

Thx for  the link! :Thmbsup:
