NOTE 5/27/2006: Because of huge amounts of wiki spam, there is now a password required to post messages or edit pages. The password is the last name of the main author of Practical Programming in Tcl/Tk, all in lowercase. Any questions or problems, please contact mark at markroseman.com. Thanks!
This is the home page for the Young Programmers Project.
Write a book for people who want to learn how to program. The programming language that they start with is Tcl and all the software that is needed is part of the project (relying on starkit technology).
The target group is young people of the age 8 to 15 years (very roughly) but any unexperienced person should be able to learn from this as well.
The first four chapters are in quite reasonable shape - your comments please!

Better learn the kids C++, and introduce them to some general hardware, then later as you begin doing more complex things introduce new hardware etc...
