I stumbled upon the site c-jump. It is a site that markets the board game c-jump. c-jump is for children to learn the basics of programming languages such as C, C++ and Java. Interestingly not just children, even grown ups who enter the software industry would need to play this. There is this blind programming culture, wherein developers create programs not understanding the basics and using code copy paste. It is neither going to help the individual, the project nor the organization in the long run. As computer science is becoming a main stream subject in schools, acquiring programming skill is not just limited to someone studying a computer science course. It does not matter at what age one learns programming, what matters is learning the basics right. Ironically I also stumbled upon an image that has relevance to this subject. Here is the link to the image. Is programming a child’s play?
