No it’s not a tip for the 5.50 at Punchestown it’s the latest project from _why (a legend in the world of Ruby, if a language as young as Ruby can have legends). HacketyHack is a framework to teach kids how to program, built using Ruby and the gekco browser engine, it’s free and it’s an ideal next step when your kids get a bit bored with MIT’s Scratch. It’s not as much “fun” as Scratch but it will guide kids into the “real world” of programming and as the code is pure Ruby, the sky’s the limit. If fact if any “real programmers” out there have been meaning to learn some Ruby to see what all the fuss is about, HackeyHack is an excellent way to start.
