I have a group of kids that are very good in Math and they want to
learn some actual programming
My approach is to introduce them to the basics of coding using ANSI
C, C++ and java (so they learn what pointers are about, how patterns
are coded in different languages, ...)
Is there a blend with those ANSI C, C++ and java as well as eclipse
installed, so that they can use it from a DVD Debian live version?
Exposing children to C and/or C++ should be considered abuse. :)
Similarly exposing pointers is just a method of introducing bugs and
security holes into programs.
Teach them using a decent object oriented language first so they learn
how to write good programs.
