Programming with Kojo

  • forward and right (and clear)
  • make square
  • get to know:
    • code completion
    • error recovery
      • syntax errors (take Kojo's help)
      • semantic errors (?)
    • incremental running
      • make pattern bit-by-bit
      • recover from semantic errors
    • copy and paste
  • make two squares
  • long program? use repeat
  • get to know: code formatting
  • make two squares using repeat

Thoughts around Kojo

Kojo is an interactive environment where children learn Computational Thinking, Creative and Artistic Thinking, and Math as an applied subject.

KLC Adult Lessons

by lalitplalitp 13 Sep 2011 17:07

  • KLC Core Ideas
  • Intro; take down participant names
  • Ideas about Computing
    • 1928 - David Hilbert's Decision Problem: Is there a procedure to decide whether any given mathematical statement is true or false?
    • This led to the question - what exactly is a procedure?
    • Answers provided by Alan Turing (Turing Machines) and Alonzo Church (Lambda Calculus)
    • A Turing Machine represents a procedure
      • Example - a procedure for a calculator, the corresponding turing machine, and a physical calculator that embodies that Turing Machine
    • A Universal Turing Machine can mimic any Turing Machine (when given a description of that Turing Machine)
      • An Example - later…
    • Von Neumann Architecture - physical embodiment of a Universal Turing Machine
    • Current computers are based on the Von Neumann Architecture
    • Hardware (Universal Turing Machine) - CPU, Memory, Input Devices, Output Devices, Secondary storage
    • Software - The Turing Machines that run on the Universal Turing Machine
      • Example a Calculator Program within a Desktop Computer.

Tweaking Kojo on Linux

by lalitplalitp 23 Aug 2011 16:57

Go into $kojo/etc/kojo.conf, and modify default_options to include:

  • —laf Nimbus (for the Nimbus look and feel, which might look better to you than the native look and feel)
  • -J-Xss (to increase the stack size, if you run into stack overflow errors while running scripts that use recursion)
