I've written my first program in 16 years

No, I don't have a Rpi yet, but the thought of getting one has re-awaken the programmer in me. It's quite a shock to discover what I've forgotten, but also a pleasure to see that I instinctively remember to tab-in my C code, can remember the syntax of Fortran IF statements and know what the PROCEDURE DIVISION is for*

I'm thinking of making contact with a few schools where I live (SE London) & would appreciate any advice on the matter?

*Thank-you to dev-c++, Intel & opencobol.org.

No schools advice off the top of my head - but I just wanted to say how pleased all of us at the Foundation are to see so many adults coming back to programming because of the Raspberry Pi. It's not a consequence we'd expected from the project, but we're chuffed to bits that it's happening. More power to your Fortran!
