Hello everyone,

Little spoiler: if all goes well, there will be an illustrated
read-aloud book "Ada & Zangemann - a fairy tale about software,
skateboards, and ice cream" for children from ~5-6 years old about Free
Software before the end of the year. The book will first be available in
German, but I am already working on an English version.

In the book there will also be a link to a website with further
information about Free Software. The current draft can be found at (please do not share it yet).

An important component of this is the resource "How can children learn
programming". There is

as a first framework for this in the wiki. It would be very helpful if
you help to expand it, so that parents whose children are interested in
programming can get some help, and if possible with resources that don't
teach programming with non-free software.

Kind regards and have a nice Ada Lovelace Day,
