designed for them that will make it fun. Something like Randal Schwartz

about 3 days. If anyone can help with more days worth of ideas I would be
grateful to here your suggestions.


Day 1: Create a Hello World script.
Day 2: Make hello world script ask for users name capture it and respond
"Please to meet you "user".
Day 3: Ask user if they wan't to know the date and time and give it to them
if they type "y".
Day 4:
Day 5 ....
