  1. Patrick and Tony! It’s Brandon Girard. I’m stuck teaching a multimedia option. I’ve done lots on film but the kids are now bugging me for some coding. I’ve read your post on Hour of Code and I’ve done a bit of research. Do you have any advice on coding projects for beginner- Grade 7,8, and 9 kids? They’re expressing interest mostly in C# and C++.

    Also how the heck are you guys!?


    1. brandon, Brandon, BRANDON!! It is very good to hear from you! I hope all is going well. I don’t have much experience with C++ or C# but I know that they are good languages to learn to build upon.

      For C++ I found this website – pretty handy and good practice and some good practical uses as well. http://www.cppforschool.com/index.html

      From what I can discern about C++ and C# is that they are very similar in nature to one another so I am not sure if learning both is for the best. If they are open to other languages, then Python is worth taking a look at as well. It has been around for a while and there are a ton of resources out there for it.

      Whichever road you go try to make it as practicable as possible. Having a goal will give everyone a focus for their efforts and practice. Without it can all seem a bit pointless.
