Don't neglect hardware interests!
Last night there was an Arduino Meetup. Normally, they meet on Thursday, but last Thursday was Halloween, so they bumped the meeting to Wed. My schedule makes it really hard to go to Thursday Meetups, so last night was a rare chance to see what people are doing in the Arduino world.
I'm partly interested for my daughter. She like STEM. So I think Arduino would be a natural interest. She also loves photography, and last night we saw a quad-copter designed expressly for photography. That was pretty cool.
I learn a lot from listening to people who have already done things I'm interested in starting to do, so it was a night well spent.
Also, we mustn't neglect hardware, even though software is so enticing!
