I admit that I did not run through the whole thing (doesn't look bad, at least from the points I read), but here is a statement of mine what I think of teaching programming to everyone:

Whoever is interested in learning to program shall have the opportunity of doing so. It is most commonly know that you need logical understanding to get into programming. People who don't have this understanding (talking of it as a resource which might be there, or can be learnt / sharpened) and are not interested in programming at all probably won't benefit from these courses. Looking at todays youth (even people from my generation, and I'm only 20 years old - let's include anyone from 20 to 25 in that statement) I'd prefer courses which teach them responsibility, Google searches and general computer awarness.
I will never again mention that Dalek Dave was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
