C-jump will teach your kids how to program



Programming has never been my forte. While I can do enough HTML to put together a very basic website, however, I couldn’t code my way out of a wet paper bag. Now had this board game been out when I was younger, that might be a different story.

The C-jump Computer Programming Board Game teaches kids 11 and up the basics of C, C++ and Java coding. The “game helps to develop understanding of a complete computer program, formed by logical sequences of commands.”

Some people push their kids into singing or dancing when they are kids, so why not push them into programming? No word on pricing or availability.

The instructions on the board make no sense.

x is never initialized.

x+2; # what is that? There is no assignment in that statement.

If (x==1) # when is that ever going to happen? There is no indication of any loop at this point, this is at the top of main().

I’d be more impressed if at least they made an attempt at putting real code on the cover instead of this crap.

“x is never initialized.” – not true! It is perfectly initialized to zero, because it’s a global variable. Try not to mislead anyone if you actually havn’t tried real coding on your own.
