Becoming a Person Who Helps People

Question from a reader -

Hi Sebastian, a question. I'd like to know how you came to be so... gracious. I've noticed that not only do you preach for others to spread gratitude, but you really do go over-the-top with it. It's a bit unbelieveable at times. But I have a good friend who is always very glad to see me (and everyone else). We aren't close anymore, but I always feel we are. I get the feeling you're similarly genuine. How did that come to be? Have you always been that way? I've been trying to be more thankful, but I don't want it to come off as meaningless as a forced plastic smile.

Well, first, that email totally made my day. Thank you.

Before I answer, I've got to pose a hypothetical question to you. Trust me, it's relevant:

Do you think it's more virtuous to do $5,000 worth of good for someone and get $0 in return, or to do $10,000 worth of good for someone and get $2,000 in return?

You may have noticed that we’re going through a quiet spell. No, we haven’t disappeared, we’re working a hard as ever putting together our level editor. The editor is going to allow every site user to create their own code challenges and deploy them to the community. You will be able to choose the units in your challenge, the strategy required to win, the win conditions, and the level art. Like Legos or minecraft, the rest will be up to you.

Want to teach your children some simple if/else statements? Or a struggling student about variables? Or your tutee about pathfinding algorithms? Pretty soon you’ll be able to make your own educational coding games and distribute them to the world.

In the mean time, let us know if there’s anything we can do to improve the way the game currently works. We really appreciated everyone’s feedback to the MVP and want to keep the momentum going!
