I posted this to the mailing list, but I thought it might been of interest to our many(!) blog readers too.
At Wednesday’s meeting there was a discussion about how in the ‘olden days’ (the 80′s) when a child got a computer it booted up into a programming environment. These days if they want to do programming they have to go searching to set up some kind of IDE. We also talked about putting a programming environment on a phone as a way to get kids into programming. Well I’ve just seen an article mirroring this discussion exactly.
