What is Coding 4 Kids and why should you get involved?

This is Thomas Suarez, he is now 14 years old. At the age of 12 he gave this speech.
Listen to what he says about how he has learned what he knows. If he can do it, why can't you?

  • Do you want a career working with computers, but are bored with what you learn at school?

  • Do you want to learn how a computer really works, rather than how to use business software?

  • Do you want to learn skills which are in demand across the world, and which could open doors for employment, even in difficult economic times?

Coding4kids is a journey. On this journey you will learn to make modern, interactive web pages. You will also develop confidence, independence and problem solving skills.

We will be starting in the world of Internet web-code, making web pages from scratch and testing them in the browser. There are 5 web technologies which are key to a deep understanding of the web, and the interactive applications we use every day:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • PHP
  • MySQL

Learning these languages will skill you for the modern internet age, and will lead you easily into other programming languages with an understanding which will make learning them much easier.

20 years ago the web was launched to the public, imagine where it might be in another 20 years, and the role you could play in its future. There has never been a more exciting time to learn new skills, technology makes so much possible today - imagine what it could do tomorrow. Imagine what you could do tomorrow.
