Great coders are today’s rockstars
It’s not often that I quote will.i.am and actually, I can remember the last time that I did (but weirdly, I’m not allowed to talk about it) however when he said ‘Great coders are today’s rockstars’ in this short film, I paused for thought and decided to agree with him. The film was made to promote coding for kids and produced by http://www.code.org/.
I’m looking now for resources to help my kids get started programming. My dad did it for me with a Dragon 32 when I was around 6 years old and it’s one of the best skills I’ve ever learnt. Being a Softie, I’m going to start my kids with Kodu.
