Hi i am 12, is python a good language for kids?

Postby StefanAlecu » Wed Jul 17, 2013 1:36 pm

I am 12, I'm from Romania, and I have some programming experience (I know how to make hello world programs in C/C++, Java and a liitle more in VB), and I was wondering: Python is a good language for kids?

Python is a good language for kids?

python is a really good starter language for kids.

The entire hello world source code is:
Code: Select all
print('hello world')


You can get a lot of tutorials from python.org
http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/
If you google there are tons and tons of tutorials around. And of course, anything you have questions with you can ask here.

Yes, it is. My 13 years son is learning python. He is using web tool at http://www.codecademy.com which is good for beginners.
