Looks like Hackety Hack is teaching kids to code with some of MeFi's own RSS feeds. Neat!

Wow. Is this something I absolutely have to be a kid to think is awesome? Because... I'm not, and I do.

But how to use them?? A fundamental secret!

load of crap. all one needs to be able to use them is the ability to read. the information is all online.

Huh. Hackety Hack is by the CHUNKY BACON! dude. That's way cool. This really should be cross-posted to the blue.

If so, then I'm still kid. I think I'm going to download it. I've been toying with the idea of learning me some Ruby and this looks like a great way to start. Then I'll force it on my 10yr old.

This is good!

Bad ass. Why he doesn't mention this stuff on redhanded is beyond me. Or maybe he does and I'm dense. This is a more kid-friendly (and offline) version of Try Ruby which you should definitely check out if you're interested in learning ruby.

Availability and ability != getting kids interested in doing it. That quote about it being a secret is just a way of peaking interest.

Consider my interest piqued, that is cool!
