At the same time, it probably wouldn't hurt to make the projects as
_interesting_ as possible. When in high school I was still coding in
assembler (demo scene, DOS tsr's, etc) after school.
Good point, was doing C++ and web development in high school as well.
Just mention this cause I feel students at that level are generally
appreciative of just getting involved. Also not all students have the
same level of expertise, so the tasks sometimes vary in level of
difficulty (I've already mentored tasks from recording a screencast to
simply setting up an irc bot)
Agree that the more interesting the tasks are (while still being
accomplishable), the better.
