We helped setup a computer programming club for 4th and 5th graders to code (two years in a row for most of the school year). Over 1/2 of the club members are girls. (Which was a goal!)

I have my concerns about Ruby 2.0's "refinements" feature, but I'm trying to be as objective as possible. We either need to find a middle ground or get rid of the feature altogether.

Lots of fun challenges, for sure. And it seems the Hotspot guys agree...they take my complaints about optimization failures as challenges. The future looks bright.
