Learning Programming is NOT about the language.
It's about the concepts, the building blocks, the approaches.

Back in the day, we had paper terminals and "edlin on steroids called TECO" (ex$$)

Nowadays, the software development ENVIRONMENT takes students HOURS to wrap their brains around.
I remember teaching Java, using NetBEANS, and the CLASSPATH problem all the kids ran into, despite being
in the handouts. LOL.

It boils down to:
- Inputs
- Outputs
- Variables/Data Structures
- Computation (Conditionals, Loops, Algorithms)
- What's Written for the "compiler"
- What's Written for the NEXT Developer!

I liked focusing on how do you decide between FOR/WHILE (and graded down if you got it backwards/wrong).

It's a skill. You have to actually open up the software, and key something in, know how to run it.
With some of the modern IDEs... That's not trivial your first time!
