    Hello Tech heads :)

    I love my tech and being a programmer lets me push tech as far as I can imagine.

    I learnt about Hour of Code through the school my children go to.
    I love the idea so much so that I will be helping out at my local school.

    So if any of you love coding and tech have a look at:

    I think this is a great program, and I’m pleased to hear it has some traction in schools here.

    I also hope the current government initiatives prove to be more than another political whim.

    If we wish to retain our wealth and prosperity as a country, our children must be equipped to manage the new world … and exploit the possibilities.

    One of my few regrets is that I discovered IT and coding so late in life … better late than never I guess, but it has revealed to me how poorly equipped (and intimidated) many adults are to manage the digital age, even quite young adults. We cannot afford to for this to happen to another generation.

    Well done for contributing your skills.

    Cheers

    Hello Greg,

    Thanks! It was great the kids loved it all 180 of them that attended!
    So much so we threw up the idea of making a coding club.
    All the kids wanted to be part of it!

    Can’t wait to help out with with!

    Yes lots of exclamation marks in that post… but hey I’m excited :)
