I learned how to program making games, it’s by far the most fun way to learn how to program (after typing “Hello World!” on the screen).
I’m a big Arduino Fan for experimenting with electronics and this Kickstarter project (I hope) ends up in every school in the country. I think teachers would be shocked how much creativity kids could put into this device and while making the games they would tech themselves how to code. I’m shocked it’s under $30 as I’ve previously been a big supporter of Arduino Esplora and it’s nowhere near as cool as Arduboy.
Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook):
“I do think this dynamic around kids growing up, building games and playing games, is an important one because I think this is how a lot of kids get into programming,” he explained. “I definitely would not have gotten into programming if I had not played games as a kid.”
