Abstract: We examined the genre and complexity of computer programs created by members of a community technology center. We collected 240 projects during a six-month period. The program genres reflected animations, games, and graphics in about equal numbers. While the number of computer programs decreased over time, the number of advanced programs remained constant suggesting that members either abandoned programs or paired up with more experienced programmers and continued to develop more complex programs.
