This is a little project I started to "scratch my own itch": a simple USB stick that would give you the Raspberry Pi IOs from your PC or Mac !

I would love to see if this is a device this community would be interested in.

I ordered something from Dell for the first time in ages. Absolutely great products. I was abhorred by how old fashioned/backwards the service is though. Really long delivery times (1 or 2 weeks!), high delivery charges and an inflexible sales department.
Still, the products are good. I'd love to have this one as well.

JavaScript as a first language instead of python ?
Damned... This is sad.
The arguments are weird IMHO : ui toolkit ? Use pyside (qt bindings!) It is crossplatform, elegant, well documented, it has an awesome canvas, vectorial support... It is hard to distribute your creation to your friend ? It is the good opportunity to teach packaging with dependencies etc...


Retiring Python as a Teaching Language. For the last ten years, my standard advice to someone looking for a programming language to teach beginners has been start with Python. And now I'm changing that recommendation. Python is still a fine language. It lets you focus on problem solving and not ...

I don't see any reason to be sad.

Python 3 is a very nice language for beginners--clean and regular. But it's not a walk in the park for teaching an introductory course. For nifty projects, you need an infrastructure. There are many, many half-assed libraries out there for the things that you'd like to be doing with beginning students. Weird APIs. Spurious reliance on numpy. Stuck with Python 2. My coauthor and myself are wading through that muck right now as we update our "Python for Everyone" book.

JavaScript has its horrific corners, but it is easy enough to stay away from them. It's not like Python has always been pretty--Python 2 has it's share of weirdness too. If this fellow finds that JavaScript has an engaging infrastructure for projects, and he makes sure the students stay away from the dumb parts, it'll work out fine.

This is a video of 2 Googlers from the Golang team pair programming live. Sounds boring hun ? Check it out, it is awesome, you can pick up idioms, what they are thinking about etc... It is a good demonstrator on how pair programming is super efficient (one guy can be more familiar with one thing and not the other, they correct each others mistakes etc...).

IMHO, this could be a great course format to introduce the general way engineers are coding in the real world. +Cay Horstmann

nearly 3/4 hour in  before he switches on syntax highlighting. Still, really cool to see that kind of interaction! They're pretty sharp coders, and fun to watch.

My last pet project ! I am probing left and right to see if some raspberry pi enthusiasts would be interested by the device.

I really see it as a cheap educational tool: plug it in, fire up your PyCharm IDE and see your python proggy interacting with the real world.

How do they deserve it? Sounds like some muslims think the unbelievers must be punished. "You think differently, you're therefore an outcast".
