My stepson wants to get into programming. he plays a lot of warcraft.
I want him to get hooked on programming and spend less time gaming.
I have wanted to get back into it as well so I though I would develops some routines and show them to him and lead him into it. sort of the blind leading the blind.
But I have some programming background and I think Python looks like a good place for us to start.


have a go with VB express, you might like it
I used the book "vb 2005 step by step" it was very good
