Linked Lists are the computer version of Chain Letters.

@craigmaloney I was just thinking of a really nice way of being able to explain linked lists using the kind of chains that children make out of loops of paper and scotch tape hooked together. That could be an entry way to writing the turtle and hare algorithm in a way that a non-programmer could understand, maybe as a piece to do on @fossandcrafts

I wonder if that would be interesting, episodes about programming ideas that require no programming background (I wonder what @mlemweb thinks?)


@cwebber @craigmaloney @fossandcrafts @mlemweb @alcinnz you could use a clockwork analogy for nested „for“ loops , pinball make great examples of state machines
