Sudden Breakthrough

Today, while I was happily hacking some Haskell in the livingroom and assumed the girls were playing, they were actually coding. She had assembled her first Scratch script by her own, combining three elements:
  • When "green flag" is clicked
  • Wait 1 second
  • Say "Hello"
I'm quite impressed that she knew where to drag all these elements from: you have to switch to a different tab containing about a dozen different elements. Yet she had managed to do this all by herself.

So now when you click on the "green flag", Santa Claus says "Hello". Santa is a figure she drew earlierly. With a little help from me she made Santa Claus play a drum beat and the other guy sing. (you can record your singing with Scratch too). She's in fact coding right now, trying out different drum beats. Gotta go, she wants to show me something!
