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!
