Hi i am 12, is python a good language for kids?

Postby StefanAlecu » Wed Jul 17, 2013 1:36 pm

I am 12, I'm from Romania, and I have some programming experience (I know how to make hello world programs in C/C++, Java and a liitle more in VB), and I was wondering: Python is a good language for kids?

Python is a good language for kids?

python is a really good starter language for kids.

The entire hello world source code is:
Code: Select all
print('hello world')


You can get a lot of tutorials from python.org
http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/
If you google there are tons and tons of tutorials around. And of course, anything you have questions with you can ask here.
we will be moving to python-forum.io on October 1 2016

Yes, it is. My 13 years son is learning python. He is using web tool at http://www.codecademy.com which is good for beginners.
