(I started with BASIC when I was 11, and began doing all kinds of random web stuff long before I ever learned Lisp, but better late than never.)

To be fair, I basically already learned Clojure last year, in the sense that I took a workshop on algorithmic music in Common Lisp and translated what I was learning into Clojure so I could use Overtone and Quil to make MIDI-controlled generative art and Markov chain basslines . But translating entry-level …

…was little. So much so, that he dreamed of being a developer from an early age after encountering BASIC in old Atari magazines. He pursued this dream all the way through university, where he attained a computer science degree in 2005.

Then, something happened.

While at university, Jon interned as a systems administrator and saw first hand what programming in Java on Sun machines looked like. Turns out, it wasn't his cup of tea. But managing all the ins and outs of infrastructure …

…invited middle school participants to the program. As a former middle school student who used her Basic programming skills to move a duck across a screen in 7th grade, I'm a strong believer that as early as you can get girls engaged in programming and becoming producers of technology, the less obstacles they'll encounter as they get older. For that reason, I was geeked to see Rooftop students show up to Hack Day. Rooftop is a K-8 Alternative Public School that believes making …

…have avoided learning to code. Instead, when I was 12 years old, I sat down with a BASIC manual and an Apple II and taught myself to code for fun .

Earlier this week, President Obama called on every American to learn to code . His message is spot on, mostly. Unfortunately, he said "No one's born a computer scientist, but with a little hard work and some math and science, just about anyone can become one."

Perhaps some colleges require advanced math for …

…eleven her parents bought her an old Commadore 64, which led her to teach herself Basic and Fortrain to program her new computer. This exposure to a usable technology sparked her life-long passion to use technology to learn and build even more intuitive and accessible tech. Her access to hardware had opened her up to a new world of software, and together the two pieces of technology have defined her worldview as well as shaping her career.

Check out how different hardware innovations are …

…a Scholastic book newsletter, and in the back was Learn to Program BASIC for Windows 95 . After begging my mother, she finally caved, and I started programming — thinking I was going to write the next Tomb Raider sequel in BASIC — and I've been hacking away at a keyboard ever since.

Q. What recent advancement do you think will transform the future of software?

We're seeing the effects of easier languages and frameworks making it tremendously easy to prototype and rapidly …

…thing and sell computers. She brought home an Apple II, which at that time, came with a BASIC manual. I read the book, followed the steps, and learned how to do high-resolution computer graphics, which looked like this at the time.

I would program the computer to draw lines and I thought this was really neat. A lot of the people that I knew, assumed that I would go into computing as a profession, but I felt that a career in computing would be like having a career in Rubik's cube. It's …
