I'm 16 and go to a technology magnet school. Two of my classes require the use of computers: Introduction to Networking and Introduction to Programming. I'd say I'm pretty much set on what will happen in my future. T-E-C-H-N-O-L-O-G-Y. In the Programming class we're using a program called Alice right now. Now, to me, it's a very useless program other than to teach VERY BASIC concepts of programming languages such as conditional statements, parameters, inheritance, variables, functions, procedures, etc. In Networking we're learning... you guessed it! Networking! We're learning how to build our own network from TOTAL scratch. From a vanilla laptop nonetheless ;p
Anyways. I've been doing a bunch of my coding in those two classes and the teachers have definately noticed. My programming teacher has taken a slight interest in it and lets me do my thing as long as I complete an assignment a day and keep up to speed with the class (no problem since I already know all the concepts! >.<). And my networking teacher agrees that "an intro to programing class for a person already programming is like UGH".
ANYWAYS xD (i always get off topic -.-) Anyone else do coding at school? :D A few others do it too at my school. Does anyone like think better while at school than at home? I do, strangely enough.
