NEW MEETING TOPIC: TEACHING KIDS TO CODE
As a parent, I'm wondering how to prepare my boys for the job market of the future, and the obvious gap needing to be filled right now is people who can solve problems in/with code. When and how to start teaching my boys coding skills is something I contemplate regularly.
If you're a parent or you're interested in preparing the next generation of coders, please come and share your thoughts. What have you tried, what's worked/working for you?
As a basic framework, we'll look at code.org and some of the tools they recommend, plus we'll look at a site I've been enjoying: jsdares.com.
