When I was in middle school, a friend showed me that you could write programs on a TI-84 calculator.
I didn't know about loops, variables, functions, or conditionals.
All I knew was how to print text and use goto statements.
But that limited knowledge was enough for me to make simple scrolling animations when I was bored in math class.
Knowing only a small number of programming constructs can sometimes be enough to make simple programs.
When you first started learning about code, what was the first program you wrote? How far have you come since then?
