CEED universe

Just some talk about general Butterscotchy stuff here.
I finally ordered a pi-top! https://pi-top.com/

I've been wanting one for a while so I can deploy a squadron of raspberry pi powered kiosks and toys around my work from a mobile workstation not beset with tons of cables.

A bonus is that the default image that comes with the pi-top OS has a game in it called CEED Universe which seems Crashlands-esque. The goal is to teach people to code in python through a survival game, so the crafting process requires actual coding. It could be lame, or it could be a really good start to something interesting. I'll report back once I'm into it a bit. Supposedly if I play it for six months I should more or less know all the python basics.

One thing that came up when I was reading about it was that the code generally used for building robots with a raspberry pi is baked into the game so that you can make in-game robots and rovers and stuff. It seems interesting! But it won't be as pretty/gross as crashlands...

It's lame... Plays like a buggy hobby project.

I found this amazing thing the other day, and it carries through on the promise of game achievement through the acquisition of real programming skills.

The island hopping game is great if you already know what you're doing, but very humbling. After you badly solve a challenge, you can browse how other people did it better.

The empire of code game is really great. It treats the different units you control like imported libraries that you have to learn. Not easy.
