    Writing the teaching material was interesting, it helps one gather one's own thoughts and be more introspective with the motivation in how you write code in a way.

    However, it turned out that the more interesting and captivating challenge was the personal development of the kids.

    Enthusiasm, joy, and play while coding make good students. It's fulfilling even now when the older graduates send me messages, thanking me for it.
