comment How can I teach a bright person, with no programming experience, how to program?
Having spent a good portion of last year trying to teach programming to middle schoolers I'm now of the opinion that you cannot TEACH someone programming. The best you can do is give them the environment and tools that enable them to learn it on their own and then be available to answer questions and give guidance. There truly are some very bright people that just won't get it. And that's okay.
