Hedy: A gradual language for programming education

Felienne Hermans

Short talk - in English

Learning to program is hard! There are so many things to think of: syntax, datastructures, problem solving. What if we could make a programming language that grows with you, and becomes stricter over time? In this talk Felienne outlines her incremental language for programming education called Hedy, the reasons why it could work and the first experience reports of kids using it.
