    I don't think they'd like my proposals of "Drop CSD" and "GTK4 should be a GTK3 compat layer to QT5".

        Maybe a GTK application with a OpenGL context that renders a turtle and then program it in JavaScript and/or Python, and a graphical drag-and-drop UI where you drag code blocks such as if, while, for, and foreach loops and arrange them in order.

          Well, I hope this could at least lead to fixing some bugs in GNOME Shell, GNOME Software and other important parts of the GNOME desktop, where many bugs stay unfixed because "there is not enough money and developers to work on them".

            Sounds like the average Rust dev.

              I can't wait for browsers to start rolling their own methods of rendering decoration then to support a feature supported on macOS and Windows.

                Everyone has to discover something for the first time, just because they haven't found out how the Insert key works doesn't mean that they can't program well:

I don't think coding should be pushed upon everyone, else you have to work with people who work as programmers even though they should have been plumbers, mechanics or or carpenters. These people produce shitty code, and have no understanding of a computer.

                  While anyone is encouraged to join, it does not mean they are *forced* to. If they don't want to join, they can simply ignore the program.
                  Let's hope this will do something because I'm tired of his

                    To be honest I doubt this will be the case because the outcome of this program most likely will be semi-experienced programmers that wouldn't like to stay in the project.

                    First it was diversity, now inclusion, and what's the future? Forced inclusion?

                      Trolling software releases is one thing. But those who troll a half-million-dollar coding education challenge really need to do some more self-reflection, and probably some more therapy sessions.
