Guido Van Robot #

by why in cult

Paul Carduner, the lead programmer on GvR.

Time for a snaky Python link as a peace offering today. Saw this on Matz’ blog.

This blows my mind. Steve Howell, the original author of PyYaml and pioneer of slideshows in YAML, wanted to teach kids Python using a Logo-like language for moving a little robot icon around a grid. He got in touch with some folks working at Yorktown High School in Arlington, Virginia. There, he spearheaded a team of high school kids to create Guido van Robot.

Inspiring. This has got to happen more.

Very nice. I’d love to see more Python and Ruby peace; both are beautiful languages.
