Only slightly off-topic


BBC's article on A-level students getting classes in retro-programming.

(I don't know whether the users outside of the UK will be able to see the video which accompanies the article as BBC has strange rules on what can be seen by the 'aliens' :)


Thanks for the link! The video runs on the continent, at least ;)


Video works fine in the US. Great story. BASIC with line numbers. Yes, yes, yes! Kids having fun writing simple programs. Yes, yes, yes. Well done, Britain. It would be a good idea in the old US of A too.
