In case you don't remember your first programming experience, the syntax is irrelevant. (Unless it makes things overly complicated, which Tcl doesn't for this tutorial.) Tcl may be ugly to you, but it's pretty straight forward. This article is getting kids making a graphics app in 4 pages of easy-to-read text. Kudos to the author.

If your 9-year-old knows that Tcl is less elegant than Python, give them GCC and start training them to kernel hack.
