Owning a computer once went hand in hand with understanding exactly how it worked.
Appropriately, I've got a new "philosophy" when it comes to teaching new programmers about object-oriented programming (OOP).
Introduction In the late seventies, Marvel Comics, the famous comics publisher (of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, The Fantastic Four , and many others) published a new and rather unique series of comic books – the “What If…” series (“What if Spiderman Had Joined the Fantastic Four”, “What if Captain America Became President”, etc.), whose declared goal was to “explore the road never traveled”. The starting point of each book in that series was an extreme situation that went far beyond the usual narrative of Marvel Comics books.
I was blown away by the amount of response - mostly positive - on my Python is important post.
Over the years, there have been a lot of efforts to create games that make learning how to program a computer simple and fun, with widely variable results.
I frequently see a problem when people (especially techies) try to teach programming to someone (especially non-techies). Many programming tutorials begin with basic programming principles: variables, loops, data types. This is both an obvious way to teach programming and almost certainly a wrong way to teach programming.
In just a few weeks UK’s Raspberry Pi Foundation will be ready to launch one of the most anticipated products of 2012 – a $35 computer .
