Kiddo’s been wanting to learn programming, with the ultimate goal of modding Minecraft. We’ve done some Ruby, but he’s impatient, so last night I we started Java with a simple program that repeats a println X times.

He wanted to pass it the integer limit.

After a few minutes, I suggested we watch a movie and check back later.

After dinner, he decided to stop it and we timed some shorter runs.

I think he has a better understanding of scale now!
