Help your attendees with starting points in different programming languages:
- Starting Points by Corey Haines

- Kata Bootstraps by Softwerkskammer Berlin
- Presets by Remote Global Day of the Coderetreat Spain
They can use an online coding environment like Cyber-Dojo. It offers 30 different languages, each with at least one testing framework (most languages have multiple frameworks) all wired up and ready to go: no downloading, installing, or configuring, etc.
Game of Life schemas
Take a look at Conway’s Game of Life (GoL).
