While there is a wealth of teaching materials available for learning computer programming, many of these resources miss the mark when meeting the needs of diverse learners. In order to meet the high demand for software developers in the market, it is in our interest to make programming more accessible to a wider and more diverse audience. This can be achieved using well-known scientific principles behind effective teaching. In this presentation, we will focus on the bridge between educational psychology and teaching computer programming.


Toby Ho is a veteran software developer who currently works as a teacher and mentor. He helps people of different walks of life learn to code and start their new careers as software developers. He also helps junior developers level up and advance their careers in the long run.

Dr. Faith Wallace is a former college professor with 10 years of experience teaching teachers how to teach and students how to learn. She leveraged her background in education for a new career as a developer. Faith, however, never left education and applies what she knows about education to help people learning to code.
