Each week I run a codeclub session at a local primary school teaching children aged between 9 and 11 the concepts of designing and writing software. This is professionally very rewarding and I would recommend every software developer give it a go.
As computer programming is now a key part of the standard primary school curriculum, there’s never been a better time to help kids develop their coding skills. I’ve started writing my first book, a parent friendly guide to teaching your child coding skills while having fun creating music. You can read the first couple of chapters for free.
