There are those who think that "computing" is learning to use "Office".... In hakerspaces "Computing" is the real stuff, from Hex code and Assembly languages via A, BBC, C, C+. C++, C#, Python to AI software (nothing to do with cows, by the way.)

However, many hacker/makers have been there already and so much stuff is freely available that you can do an awsome lot with a PC "ON" switch and a guiding hand.

In case you were wondering.  The BBC Basic program above was used to design the gores for hot air balloons made in Primary schools throughout the north of Scotland.  These youngsters put hot air to good use in our Primary schools.




It is good news that BBC BASIC is again easily available to pupils under the Acorn RISC OS Pi operating system on the Raspberry Pi computer.
