Hi @jonobacon the pedant in me wants to know how we can have an integrated IDE given that it literally means.
Integrated “Integrated Development environment”
Don’t take this too seriously as on Radio 4 yesterday I heard someone talking about a PIN number:
“Personal Identification Number” number.
That said I like the idea of people understanding code and while some of us will never be able to understand a big project, the complexity is overwhelming to most, we can all understand basic ideas.
The above example is pseudo C or C++ but I hope illustrates the point there are complicated issues that need the best of us to think. There are also areas we can all contribute to. Teaching people that the computer is not a box where “and now magic happens” is important. I think this is not just a kid issue
Looking forward to help anyone who needs a better understanding 8 year old or 80 year old
