Then last week codecademy started lessons in Python. We decided to give it another shot.
First I needed to stop being so parental, and do what I could to get back in touch with my inner eleven year old. So, yesterday we took a break from code learning, and had some fun with the "x-ray goggles" at Mozilla's Hackasaurus. This is a great little tool that helps kids learn HTML and CSS by allowing them to mess with what they see in their browser.
X-ray goggles allow you to scan the different sections of the page, see the HTML/CSS code, and change it right there on the spot. The first exercise is to download a url for an image and change the Hackasaurs girl for a Serious Cat.
I felt Usher could use a little serious cat treatment too:
And it was inevitable that Ben would start hacking the family website:
Imagine a web where cats could learn to code....that could get serious.
