1. Time Spent: 15 minutes of browsing the site and following links.
2. Content: The content does not really give the user enough information about
the ICON programming language to give you a feel for what to do and how to do
it. It does not give compelling reasons for using this language or how it is
better than more standard languages. Links often lead you to either a dead end
and do not provide you with a way to get back to your starting point.
3. Enhanced Learning: Unless this language is a part of a program of study of
various languages it does not seem to provide additional skills for a
programming course.
4. Ease of Use: The site mentions various text editors and attempts to give the
user information about how to use them and their differences but fails to
explain where to get them. The links can lead you in circles or to dead ends.
