Awesome. Wanted to make sure I gave you credit on the patch. :)


jmmastey commented Dec 30, 2010

Heh, thanks! I don't know to what extend you're targeting the demographic, but I have a precocious 8 year old who has basically completed the included lessons, so if you need some play testing let me know. :)

Awesome. Yep. Check this out, which was written by the original author of Hackety. I totally identify with it, though: i was that 7 year old kid making text adventures in BASIC.

The goal is to make something that's kid friendly, but doesn't treat them like children, so that adults aren't turned off either...

I will certainly be making more lessons. I also want to have community lessons, so...

Completely agree with those sentiments (though I was never much of a hacker as a kid, myself). I'm happy to help out any way I can, and I would be happy to contribute lessons if I can think of something that feels like it needs inclusion. I may have to learn shoes myself sometime soon.
