520    Learn programming using the Commodore 16/Plus 4 system. 
       Following this book, you and your children will not only 
       learn BASIC programming, but also have fun emulating a 
       retro Commodore system. There are many ways to bring the 
       fun of learning to program in the 1980s back to life. For 
       example, downloading the VICE emulator to a Raspberry Pi 
       allows for the classic "turn on and program" experience 
       and also provides some retro computing project fun. Many 
       parents learned programming in this same way and can have 
       fun helping their children follow the same path. You can 
       also use this book as an opportunity to dust off your 
       computing skills or learn programming concepts for the 
       first time on a system that's easy, approachable, and fun 
       with a nostalgic twist. Commodore computers were the most 
       sold computing devices before the iPhone. Nowadays, the 
       Commodore system can be run using freely available 
       emulation on modern computers. This book uses VICE, which 
       is available for PC, Mac, Linux, as an online app, and on 
       the Raspberry Pi. Beginning Programming Using Retro 
       Computing offers simple programming concepts to give 
       children and adults alike a sense of wonder in seeing that
       words they write have the power to do things, like play 
       sounds, draw graphics, or finish math homework
