@tindall I gave a programming talk once to an astronomy class .. prof's requirement was "make it simple but they should leave able to code something" so I threw a tiny-c at them that fit on a thumb drive without external libraries so they could use it on the horribly locked down campus computers. Several students came up to me afterward... they were compsci majors. They'd never realized code was just text until they saw me writing it in /notepad/; it blew their brains.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
