(K-8) EA Code Challenge
« on: 11 December, 2013, 11:33:47 PM »
This is more oriented for people who people who are not in high school yet.

EA Code Challenge

It's a pretty straight foward introduction to programming and EA is offering an incentive for young kids with an interest. Feel free to post any questions/comments/thoughts here. Definitely share with your younger friends if you have any.

I probably should note - while the immediate incentive is only for young people, this is for anybody who is interested in learning about programming.

Computer Science is a lot more than just programming, it's also very heavy on math. A lot of the algorithms that are commonly used actually were developed well in the past, often for other purposes.

Shymapler asked if she was the one at fault since Taurvi acted ready to accept her and why she was so wet

B-B-But I'm in high school and graduating.

That aside, I might try this one since I do have interests in programming.

Oh boy math again, I just had exams the day before and math was really hard.

But I'll probably get over it and start being serious in college.
