So 'why the lucky stiff' has revealed the latest project, which is the culmination of several projects. Clearly impressed with everything from why, Hackety Hack deeply resonates with me. Having my first programming epiphony implementing the de facto 'tic tac toe' in BASIC for my brothers to play with, why is providing the same for a new generation.

From Hackety Hack...

In the 1980s, a language called BASIC swept the countryside. It was a language beginners could use to make their computer speak, play music. You could easily draw a big smiley face or a panda or whatever you like! But not just BASIC. Other languages like: LOGO and Pascal were right there on many computers.

In this century, you may have dozens of programming languages lurking on your machine. But how to use them?? A fundamental secret! Well, no more. We cannot stand for that. Hackety Hack will not stand to have you in the dark!!
