  Hackety Hack!

Greetings,

Programming should be fun, it’s what gets us programmers into it in the first place, and it’s what keeps us going at it.

Too many layers have been heaped on programming these days; most IDEs are oppressive, process-oriented beasts.

I, and many other programmers, have been concerned about how the next generation of programmers are going to be introduced to the joy of programming when all the tools out there seem to suck the fun out of it.

Enter why the lucky stiff, and Hackety Hack!. Taking one back to the days when programming was as easy as typing something in, and hitting enter. 🙂

Hackety Hack! is about learning to program, and being able to do really cool things in a very few short lines.

I’ve been a fan of _why for a while, with a really wild approach to teaching Ruby, and a lot of really interesting code, and this is even cooler.

If you’re new to programming, or have kids, or just want to play with one of the simplest ways to write programs, get Hackety Hack!
