Project description

As this Laptop is aimed at children, it needs to have learning tools and just not have them rather having them so as to make the learning process easy for the beginner and at the same time an ocean for information for the trained developers.

Hackety Hack is an exciting new project for learning to write code and think like a programmer.It is geared primarily toward self-learning situations.

The project consists of developing high quality problems which can be used to learn and teach programming with multi-platform solutions. We have used C, C++, Java, Ruby and Python for developing solutions with step by step tutorials.

Tutorial Support and Websites

The project will include lots of learning material under the GPL license to have no limits on the learning process, and tests created by experts. We also aim at providing forum support so that individuals problem can be dealt with directly by experts of the appropriate field.

More Information about the work can be accessed from link.

We are in the process of publishing our materials on Curriki.org

Interns

Anubhav Agarwal

Background I am Anubhav Agarwal pursuing B.E. in IT from N.S.I.T,India. I have a nice hand on experience on C, Java, SQL. In course of learning these varied languages I have understood the problems a newbie faces while acquainting himself with similar languages. This project is hence close to my heart. I have learnt Ruby in past few days and find it an interesting language and highly suitable for the next generation students, as it arms them with all powers of Object oriented language and at the same time maintais its simplicity. For any queries contact me on anubhavit@gmail.com

Ankur Verma

Being really fascinated with Hackety Hack v1.0 I learned Ruby and found this as a prodigious tool for beginners to write code easily. I will love to contribute to this project. One of my previous projects aimed towards developing a complete solution for problems faced by students in school using GSM technology. Besides this I have worked on several other projects[link] and gained a lot of experience in developing innovative solutions.

Vijay Majumdar

Background I like learning different computer languages. And thus I know how to make it easy for newcomers to learn new languages.I have working experience in PYTHON, C, C++, C#,JAVA and VB.NET.I am also used to work with STLin C++ which makes it very easy to develop big projects quite easily & we can create tutorials for the students on them.
