    Interestingly, I think computer science has some things to learn from linguistics about how to teach programming.

That's something I came to think as well. There's a reason they're called "programming languages", even if people relate them closer to mathematics. The grammar might not be particularly human-friendly relative to English, but then - it isn't often with languages you're only starting to learn.

If you'd ever like to discuss the matter - feel free to message me: I'd be excited to merge my two passions for a purpose. If you already have some observation on the matter that you could share - please do, here or in IRC: I'd be delighted to hear it.

I'd love to! Probably over the summer, since this semester I'm TAing a different class.
