Short talk - in English

In days of yore, parents tried to force their children to learn skills in which kids weren't interested, for the sake of their child's future. It doesn't work well. In this era all businesses are software businesses by default, and we need a steady stream of enthusiastic new developers in the coming years.


How do we get kids interested in coding without being those overbearing parents of yesteryear? There are myriad ways to engage children of all ages to enjoy the problem-solving aspect of development, and set them on a path towards a lucrative and productive future. Come learn a few with me, and give the youth in your life the gift that keeps on giving: a future career they'll love.
