Programming Club
« on: March 28, 2011, 11:18:05 am »
I'm thinking of starting a 83 series programming club at my school. Any suggestions/comments/ways to teach things? The goal here is to make more calc programmers and improve the existing ones.
In other news, Frey continues kicking unprecedented levels of ass.

One idea is to show them to this site here -- though only allow the ones you know won't troll to come.  This way, you all have a way to commuicate, not only with yourselves but also with an experienced community as well.

I would say go to a teacher and ask just how you can get one started -- then advertise!  Don't make it sound like 'Nerd Stuff' -- show pictures of awesome games like Starfox 84, ROL3, Trio and Niko: Falling ;D etc., and also show some trig solvers and graphers as well -- appeal to everyone!  Show why calculator programming is the rage -- yuo can do it anywhere, it's much easier to set up a coding environment on calc rather than on a computer, and you can learn from this experienced community so you can start making games fast!  ;D

good luck with the club -- advertising is the key to success ;)

My only advice to you is to be able to know and understand those who think like a programmer, and don't invite people to the site immediately, but after a little while.  And yes, being a programmer is kinda a mindset.

I'm thinking about starting off things with a test to know who I'm dealing with. I'm leaning towards having the questions be all over the place. Thoughts?

Yeah, that would be good.  I wouldn't do this personally, as I know no one at my school would care.  This isn't just a small undertaking, either, mind you.

I am starting one too.  It will be a first semester only club though.
I have a teacher too so it is "sponsored" by our school. :)
We have a Chess club/Rubix cube club, that is combined together.  Calc club will be joined with them for the 1st 1 or 2 years.

I'm thinking of making the test be "make a short program that best shows off your skills".
