Kid's Programming Language
« on: January 30, 2007, 09:17:25 AM »
You should check out the Kid's Programming Language website. It's a freeware programming language developed for kids. It's similar to BASIC but less linear. It is interesting so many non-kids, that they decided to change the name to Phrogram now. Amazing games and programs can be written with just a few lines of code. Some examples:

Wasn't there a language called "Turtle" or something like that.  It was primarily for controlling graphics on the screen.  The last I heard about was in the early 80s.

Yes, that was called Logo I think. You had to move a turtle around to draw stuff on the screen :D
