Back in high school I took computer science as an additional, after-hours subject. I was utterly hopeless at it and my dad basically had to do my homework for an entire year. Coding is hard, man. Only now it’s sort of not because Mojang, Microsoft, and Code.org have put together an hour-long interactive tutorial that teaches the basics. Also, it teaches it to you using a version of Minecraft. So basically it has my attention… for an entire HOUR. That is exceedingly rare for me because I have the attention span of a two-year-old hyped on espressos and Red Bull.
