Getting kids into programming

I just read Bill Cafferty’s blog about Scratch, a MIT project for getting the young into programming. Now, my son is too young to be cranking code, but it’s interesting that their solution not only include a programming language suitable for the young, the solution include the process from inspiration, through building to sharing (get into production) on the web. I cannot help admiring the project sponsors for realizing that we need to learn our young to build stuff which are valued by others.

The web site also include remixing functionality, which in essence get the ones into refactoring and open source from start. We’ll better look out for these youngsters when they hit the market!
