  4. The introduction was simple and direct to the point.
    I am really interested in simulation, but examples with games will be very fun !

  5. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who
    has been doing a little research on this. And he actually bought me lunch simply because
    I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this.
    … Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending
    the time to discuss this matter here on your blog.

  6. Im 38 years old, but I will humbly start programming with Greenfoot 🙂

    Thank you for making this available, free of use.

    Cheers mate!

  7. I’m 40 years old and learning Greenfoot. I watched Joy of Code a year or two ago but I came back because they are great videos. Adding Java as my second programming language.
