Matthew MacLaurin is the man behind Kodu (formerly Boku), a Xbox game designed to help children learn the basics of programming launching on Xbox Live this spring. Kodu is both surprisingly simple and incredibly complex, allowing a child to make a simple game, or an adult to rapidly prototype a far more complex game.

Matthew sat down with me to talk about Kodu, where it started, and how to create a programming language that can easily be coded using an Xbox controller.
