What is the best way of getting children interested in Programing? I have a feeling that my little boy who is 7 would really take to it. When I was at his age, I was taught BASIC by my brother and later C and C++ and I loved it. Although I never took it any further, I think it gave me a real advantage in understanding how programing and computers work throughout my career. Now, without giving my age away too much, BASIC was on our Commodore 16 and 64 by default, and when it came to C and C++ it was Turbo C that we used (you know, that blue screen with yellow fonts) . All fitted on a floppy disk and loaded up with no problems at all. Is there anything like a good BASIC emulator that we can use now with list of commands and examples of use? Any other suggestions of where to go to find good online tutorials? Any suggestions would be most welcome.
