# Introduction to Introductions to Programming
Welcome! So, want to learn about computer programming?
# Yes, Please Introduce Programming
OK - what should we do?
[[Play a board game]]
[[Look at some slides, talk, ask questions]]
[[Do some live coding]]
[[Oh no, we're out of time!|Conclude]]
# No, Probably Better Off Without It
I can't say I particularly blame you - [[as Huxley says...|Conclude]]
# Play a Board Game
Cool, let's play (link:"Code Master")[(open-url: "http://www.thinkfun.com/products/code-master/")] This is a board game designed to teach programming concepts.
[[We've played enough Code Master now]]
# Do Some Live Coding
(link:"OK, here we go!")[(open-url: "https://repl.it/languages/python3")]
[[We've had enough of this|Yes]]
# Yes, Discussing the Socio-Political Dimensions of "Code Master" Sounds Great
A riveting discussion shall ensue!
[[The discussion has now been sufficiently riveting|Yes]]
# Look At Some Slides and Talk
(link:"Here are some slides to look at")[(open-url: "https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1YuxHtTLGNXn3uUVQT4PL09TedKbqZ9C17B4JahHox-M/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000")]
[[We're done looking at slides now|Yes]]
## Closing Provocation
*"a talent for manipulating symbols tempts its possessors into habitual symbol manipulation, and habitual symbol manipulation is an obstacle in the way of concrete experiencing and the reception of gratuitous graces."*
-**Aldous Huxley, "Island"**

# We've Played Enough Code Master Now
Would you like to discuss "Code Master" in light of the "Everyone Should Learn to Program" concept and the way various economic, social and educational anxieties manifest in this discourse?
[[Yes, this sounds riveting]]
[[No, Alan, now is not the time for you to show off the limits of your knowledge of critical theory|Yes]]
