Inspired by the wonderful folks at [Kano], I think 2014 is the year I get my daughter programming. Kano has done a marvelous job of making the Raspberry Pi experience more Lego-like, and that works well in our household. I’m not patient enough to wait until July 2014 for their hardware to ship, but I contributed $29 for access to the software (and for the tee shirt). We can pick up a Pi and a case and other bits that we might need off Amazon.
When we need inspiration, we might look to [Make], which regularly features [posts like this].
