Let’s program!

Last year, I started to teach my, then, 9 year-old programming. Yesterday, we took it a step further by including 5 of his friends. We began writing a simple 2D game in Haskell using the Gloss library (which provides a simple, purely functional, event-driven API on top of OpenGL). My goal is to provide the children with a basic understanding of fundamental computational concepts.

I put the code from our first session into a public Git repo along with a brief summary of how the session was structured.
