How, pray tell, do people teach functions then variables? I mean, a function is a variable for good gosher's goodness sake
Thank you. THIS is what I have been saying to my HS friends who are taking those fucking AP CS classes. That if they want to learn how to program, they need to focus on the concepts, how they go together, and how to improve upon them.
Which is sure as shit is what they are not learning in those fucking AP CS classes.
Huuugo26213yYou forgot the most important thing: make it fun. Otherwise you'll be teaching 0 students soon.
I'm also not sure about the Celeb posters. Programming needs to be cooler in the public mind
@Huuugo when you're forced to get a tech credit in school fun isn't the priority
plus, when a company is so desperate to create a better self image to the point where they have to put those posters on the wall, it really says a lot about the rest of their company. maybe code.org should focus more on their content?!?!
@SoulSkrix but for a class, fun shouldnt deter learning. and in my opinion, it is less fun than the usual alternative. and besides, there's no reason kids should get into programming at such a young age.
