How many of you have had the thought of educate your partner and invite him/her to the beautiful world of programming?
I once started to give my wife lessons twice a week, It was a competition between me and another programmer, we thought it would be nice to have our wives understand why we work as programmers and also have it as a hobby sitting all night long. Maybe we could get our wives to feel the power too?
After a couple of months my wife didn't like the idea any more, it was too hard to understand she thought, same for my friends wife.
So now we are thinking of some project that would be too fun for our wives to turn down just to get the spirit up again.
It would be nice to hand over a project to my wife, "Can you debug this for me, please? There are some strange error on module xxx." :)
Maybe I'm crazy, what do you think?
