Hello from Lafayette, California, near San Francisco. I’ve just started using the amazing Sonic Pi with my private computer programming students, and those in junior high in a private school here in Lafayette. Many of my students are musicians, and they’re blown away by the cool sounds they can make. At the junior high a few weeks ago, when I introduced Sonic Pi, the kids in all three grades (6–8) were the most engaged I’ve ever seen them.
One problem with my learning along with them was that I taught them
sleep before I knew about
play_pattern_timed, so many ended up with some very long programs. (Hmm, that gives me an idea about a webapp that takes such long sequences and changes them to use
play_pattern_timed. Or maybe an IDE (I use IntelliJ IDEA) feature that offers to improve the code.)
I’m looking forward to learning a lot from you all, and sharing it with my students.
