Blog post talking more about the goal

In case you missed it through other channels, I wrote a blog post the other day talking more about the goals for the project and we'll work to make sure we don't force square pegs into round holes:

      I especially like the 'trying is encouraged' part - that's how I write, keep poking the function until it starts doing what I want it to.

      Again, I think it's going to be great for education purposes, probably with a sets of problems to solve with answers loaded as plugins. Can't wait to try the editor.

      Another feature I'd like to see added maybe later as a plugin is working with SQL, JS and Perl/Pyhton/Whatever to make following MVC pattern easier.
