Notes in preparation for a discussion with new programmers
View notes.txt
start w/ apple ][+ simulation, show how it taught me to communicate with it: 'list' shows the full source of the current program, line number-based editing, 'run' to test changes and 'save' to store them.
then cut to chrome's dev tools, show how they teach us to communicate -- start from blank page, build vibraphone.
- started programming when six -- first phase is learning to speak to the machine and have it do what you want
- ultimately that means building a little computer inside your head, since communication is heavily predicated on prediction
your first 100 programs
- like games of go: get them out of the way as quickly as possible
- you're learning the language: practice practice practice
You can’t perform that action at this time.
