Emoji-nal Coding

I am helping my 8 year old daughter learn Swift, along with some general coding concepts.

The other day she while using Playgrounds and FOR loops she discovered that she could assign an emoji as the variable (was news to me). This led to a conversation between us, her own thoughts on using emojis in code and onto a shared visioning of emotional coding.

if user = :) then

as switches

or whiles

or conditional loops, for user :) to :(

perhaps combined with the user interface and methods of assessing the user's state. She suggested heart rate, facial expressions etc. that would let the system have a guess.

I didn't find the right solution: IT Security Explainer Video
