Forms are the worst.

My son is just impressed by keyboards and mice at this stage πŸ˜‡. I'll teach him some Lua and maybe we can write a game, Lua is the perfect first language, also it's applicable to games the the youngsters play like Roblox and Garry's mod, all have some element of Lua scripting in game, very cool.

A friend of mine wrote a PokΓ©mon battle clone from the Gameboy colour. Maybe that's the sort of thing you might want to try?

This feels like mumsnet haha.

Lua is a very easy language to pick up as its very basic and has few constraints, easy syntax as well as being a high level language which always helps...😁.

But i'd suggest python as a first language then lua but i suppose the younger generation would prefer lua as they can see their creations come to life in places such as Roblox Stufio πŸ‘.
