How My Mom Taught Me to Program

If you don’t know me, my name is Ethan. I am Velda’s son, and I love to program. Really, my mom didn’t teach me how to program… she just helped me get interested, find tools, and figure out how to figure things out. Maybe these tips and tools will help you.

They say if you teach a kid more than one language when they’re little, it will always be easier for them to learn other languages. Same goes with programming: don’t let your kid settle into just Java, for example. Mix it up with some PHP, or even HTML and CSS. Mom even had us use different operating systems. Who runs Windows, OSX, and a few flavors of Linux all under one roof? We do.
