+ - Ask Slashdot: How to introduce 7-year-old son to programming

Submitted by THE_WELL_HUNG_OYSTER
THE_WELL_HUNG_OYSTER writes: I'm a professional programmer and have been programming since I was a small boy. I want to introduce this to my 7-year-son but know nothing about teaching this to children. Since he enjoys Roblox and Minecraft very much, and knows how to use computers already, I suspect teaching him to write his own small games would be a good starting point. I'm aware of lists like this one, but it's quite overwhelming. There are so many choices that I am overwhelmed where to start. Anyone in the Slashdot in the community have recent hands-on experience with such tools/systems that he/she would recommend?

Invest in physics -- own a piece of Dirac!
