I know I don’t exactly fit your age profile anymore but I really want to be MADE into a killer PHP programmer. I love watching your shows on a relaxing Sunday afternoon and I’ve seen girls become prom queens, rappers and skateboarders. How exciting would it be to turn a motivated grrrrrl into an excellent programmer?
I can already imagine dramatic framing shots at 4am with pizza boxes and cola, such as these:
This is me at the RFID Hackers Camp in a futile attempt to write a php Flickr script at 5am. I am a cut-and-paste coder, I can put little pieces together, tweak them a bit and hope they work. However, I would love to be able to produce beauties such as these:
- Interactive storytelling experiment #2: The urban areas of tomorrow by Wilbert Baan
- Google News interpretations by Flickr by Erik Borra
We could show how great the art of producing clean code is and how difficult it is to achieve. And while we’re at it, we could do something really politically correct (meh) such as promoting the fun of technical education and skills to girls.
What do you think MTV?
