@carlosxcl What gave you the idea to make this game?
Carlos LagrangeMaker@carlosxcl · Founder @Sunlight
@jakecrump I attended Makers Academy (a coding bootcamp) and saw the opportunity there was for a game like this. There was a 10x acceleration in learning when you got people together to just talk about coding concepts around a table for 15 minutes. If you can create that excuse and wrap it around an education game that can be fun, I thought that would be pretty powerful. On the other hand looking at a screen for 10 hours a day also made me want a nice deck of flash cards I could use alone :) Note, you still have to work really hard, alone, with your computer for days to get anywhere decent. And code cards won’t help you at all if you don’t do that. But it’s a nice compliment to traditional learning paths.

@carlosxcl Love the idea! Do you ship outside 🇺🇸?
Carlos LagrangeMaker@carlosxcl · Founder @Sunlight
@triplejberger Thanks! Only US and Canada for now. International shipping is too expensive without distributors around the world. I am thinking of releasing a free print & play version sometime in the near future as a workaround to this - plus I know a lot of schools that would benefit from it.

@carlosxcl that would be great! 🙌

@carlosxcl I'll be happy to help with distribution (and maybe production, too) in Europe.

This is so awesome! Proving to people that they can learn to program is so crucial, and I think this a is great way to get started.
