You know what, just forget it.

Since 2012, numerous organizations have proliferated to teach people of all ages to begin programming. A famous example is Hour of Code.
Back then, when I was eight or so, I did not have those opportunities. You couldn’t Google “programming for kids” and have something more functional than Scratch come up. And Python was not so popular back then, much less geared toward beginners. Consequently, I had to put up with VB.NET until such resources came about, and people actually started caring just a bit about youngsters who wanted to seriously pursue coding.
But after all that – the hours of code have passed, you’ve mastered the docs after poring them over – what now? How would a nine-year-old ever start doing anything more constructive with coding than “Hello World” and bubble sorts and turtles without lurking forums and having some autonomy?
This is what I am talking about.
Also, please do not make yourself look like an elitist brat and tout it around multiple times, say “you didn’t read it,” and then pull some random quote off of it to give the impression that you read it.
Thank you for your cooperation.
