The bad-word filter didn't add the asterisks. I did.
I got passed a link to this "Computer Language" by a parent who asked me if I knew anything about it and was this a worthwhile endeavor for her teenage son to learn. I assumed by the name that it was not and was a joke, but a little research suggests that it is perhaps a legitimate endeavor for an after-school Programming Club. If I were the teacher in charge of this club, I imagine the name would give me pause as it would distract from the learning. Apparently, though, the teacher wants to try it out with some of the kids who are having a hard time with the more traditional languages as well as some of the advanced kids who want to learn a little more about the deeper Computer Science concepts in lieu of teaching Assembly. A quick glance makes me skeptical that the kids who are having problems with BASIC and Python will be able to grasp this language.
Is this a legitimate language? Has anyone heard of it/used it? Would you consider teaching it to teenage students or is it a waste of effort? If you DID decide to teach it, who would you teach it to: newbies and folks having problems or the more experienced whiz kids planning to major in Computer Science in college?
