Reminds me of the days when I was taught the basics of programming logic with Logo.

I have seen a TV report about that method. It is used in some French schools to teach coding. Cool.

Love it. I’m going to give it a try on my eight year old this weekend. :slight_smile:

I believe ‘Scratch’ is a similar programming environment, geared towards young programmers. (It is available on the Raspberry Pi whose goal is getting kids started in programming and computer sciences)

The visual aspect of Scratch is a great way to ease the learning curve of programming.

Yes, it is similar.

I’d love to show you my game development tool once it is ready to be released. :slight_smile:

This uses visual programming and some time in the future I shall implement scripting support. But I got to get my priorities right.
