Learn any of these 16 programming languages and you’ll always have a job

Good old Matlab. Used Matlab for engineering back in my uni days. Pretty powerful program if you ask me. Can do all sort from mathematics, formulas, equations and even have addons like Simulink for simulation such as Renewable Energy Solar Panels.

Code Combat Game

Found an interesting way of learning a programming language. An RPG game where you equip gear to your character toon and collect diamonds.
The game has 4 languages to learn at the moment, which are:

  1. Python
  2. Javascript
  3. CoffeeScript
  4. Lua

The GUI interface looks pretty awesome and creative. Here are a couple of screenshots that I have tried playing it. You go straight to gameplay and it doesn’t really teach you the basics of programming. It’s asking you to type the code. E.g. hero.moveRight(); This is most suited for primary school kids. Coding for fun and a bit of some exposure. Maybe need some theory saying this is a function, class, etc?

Nevertheless, it seems like a fun way to learn. A great way to exposure your little kid to programming! Better start early when they are young. Wish this was available back at my time!
