I was thinking about these drew devault posts, the one about rust and the one about wayland, and thinking how it feels like he was arguing the same thing on two different sides, and it seems someone else had the same feeling and actually did it :)
My daughter (13y) wanted a LED stripe for Christmas. Instead of something ready4use, I bought her NEOpixel stripe. Gave her Micro:bit and a few wires. She did some coding in Scratch when she was 8y but then had a long pause. I explained to her where each wire should go and guide her to the first light on. Today, it is her second day in a row she is playing with colors, buttons, linear potentiometer, etc. I am SOOO proud.
