My soon to be 15 year old daughter was engrossed with something on her laptop yesterday. Thinking it was fan-fiction, I asked her what she was writing. She knitted her brow for a moment, and looked up. “Its code combat Dad.” she said, quite matter of factly. I must have had a slightly startled expression on my face. I knew she had dabbled with it, and had recommended (/sigh) Python as a language, after she took (and aced) a Java class last year, as Python is inherently simpler.
