hello guys! 🙂 my daughter is an ipad "user" since she was less than a year old. she has already started interacting with it by touching before she was 2 years old. she is almost 6 years old now and i think she turned out well so far. she is playing simple games on it. drawing a lot with the paper app, but even more on actual paper. watches cartoons from netflix (deleted the utube app because of elsagate-like shit is just too easy to access). she regularly reviews photos on it, which are synced from my phone. uses the sample editor to record her singing in garage band. also connects her midi keyboard to garage band. teaches other kids how to use it...
but apart from that she rides the scooter since we was ~3 yrs old. started in-line roller skating and swimming about a year ago. spends a lot of time in our little above-ground pool either alone or with her friends. plays with the sand, shells and the dogs on the beach maybe 1-2 times a week. so i think we could strike a good balance between letting her interact with both the virtual and the physical world. so far...
and she started to ask me a few months ago to read bed-time stories to her. also asks me regularly to put on some music for the past year. im feeding her everything possible, from baroque classics to rock opera, folk and electronic. she listens to most of it in awe 🙂
2 months ago she was captivated by the kirov ballet for 20 minutes. she watched it like as if she would need to take an exam from it afterwards 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rJoB7y6Ncs
@alandipert @fiddlerwoaroof I have a "starter template" based on that stack (hoplon + reitit + shadow-cljs) that's pretty up to date (I use it on internal projects). I planned initially to put it on Github but since Boot is the default Hoplon build tool I didn't want to distract from that. If there's any interest, I don't mind sharing it.
BTW, a few months ago, when I was searching for Hoplon examples, I noticed that a lot of the main repo examples are out of date/not working. If you need help updating those, I'm game.
help updating them would be great!
