How to write code: Kid edition

03 December 2014

Topics: development

I was recently asked to do some research on how to teach an 8-year old about mobile app development. This made me happy on a bunch of levels. This kid is interested in something that is pretty complicated for adults. And she’s a girl. Not to go into gender issues here, but this fact made me even happier. Women in STEM are still so grossly under-represented it is ridiculous.

But I digress….

Coding for kids! I compiled this list for one person and thought… well… this is good information for everyone! Even if you are an adult, these are some great sites to get starting with writing your first “Hello World”. If you have no idea what I am talking about, you will find out very soon. Trust me.
