It looks like you guys offer a fantastic program.
My nephew (10.5) has been self-teaching through experimentation, youtube videos and asking me question.
While I don’t have the $150 to plunk down for this, I would if I did. He’s got the patience for it (more than me). I learned to program with BASIC in the 80s and my programming knowledge grew through the years from that.
My nephew started out how a lot of kids do: Around 8, he wanted to hack some items into Cubeworld, so I found the tool for him and he started getting familiar with cheat engines, a little exposure to hex and stuff and a internal mental model of how the whole system of games are put together.
Now he’s gotten into more advanced things, although not quite yet there with Blender and JAVA, outside of modifying some mods here and there.
I don’t have much experience in JAVA myself or Blender, but I use other tools to accomplish my goals.
A course like this? I’d probably take it myself.
To me, it doesn’t matter what languages you learn because they’re quite similar in skeletal form. Functional languages are different of course, but for that, you just need to use a little bit of Excel to comprehend functional languages.
So, I’d get it if I could and kudos on the offering. I’m sure you’ll help a lot of kids get an edge on programming and a feeling for the magic of programming that I have: Making the computer do what you want.
