Never have they let them dip their feet in other ponds of creative opportunity, nevertheless get a taste of everything. Generations to come, one job will be taking over the all this different fields. It will be integrating all all jobs together and it is computer programming.

Programming is just the beginning of a whole new lifestyle.

“What those kids are learning now—what they must learn, if they hope to be employable in the 21st century—is something educators call ‘procedural literacy.'”said Wall Street journal.

“When you learn to code, you start thinking about processes in the world,” says Mitchell Resnick, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor.

Scratch has 6.2 million registered users, resulting in accessibility  to children as young as five. In addition, this learning experience gives our younger generation the upper hand, their parents never had.

Looking at how far our young ones have come with the new technology. Also,not to mention the potential  and ability they are  creating for  outstanding breakthroughs for our near future.

And here at Kode we would do the same!

Come on down, help us to help you to expand our future generations potential and your child’s horizons. Join the coding gang, and see the impossible unveil.

For the love of coding lessons:

Don’t you despise the way of learning something , which kills the subject or topic you love very much(for example- coding lessons).It feels as if your fascination for that topic is fading away into nothing ,through your long lectures or 500 page textbooks. Even though you make it out of there, you feel guilty for not have putting your best efforts into learning what has been taught.

Coding comes off as boring and stressful, and even before one has started thier coding lessons, they never follow through. They think their time and effort is worth more then learning ,because if they can’t have fun while learning there’s no point to it.

This is for all the aspiring programers!

Here we have 5 fun ways to learn what you love most:

  1. Code wars
  2. Free Code Camp
  3. Kode cards
  4. Code school
  5. Scratch

Randi Weingarten
President, American Federation of Teachers
Computers have and continue to change the world around us, and programmers continue to be essential. But I know first hand from studying FORTRAN that many of us get intimidated by it and we shouldn’t be. Computer programming has become far more accessible to teach and learn, and our country needs more students to learn it.

Still Feel Coding is Cryptic/Crazy?

Your First Step To Kode:

Some people who were once passionate about coding give up, they think learning all this is stressful. They really want to learn coding, but everyone around them aren’t giving them enough positive reason to continue their work. Future programmers think it will affect their mental health and make them “go crazy”. Which is why they call it quits and don’t continue their learning.

Well if you all agree about how coding is anything but fun, then my friends you are all doing it all wrong!

Coding: Where New Beginnings Take Place

This is where it starts:

Importance of coding“Leave the coding to the adults, mostly men”, said NO ONE, ever!

Every individual who is not in the computer science field, have been living in a stereo type, that is – coding is a job where men sit in a dark room for hours, behind a screen typing in random numbers for no apparent reason. They find it boring, and think to themselves,’why would anybody get themselves into that mess?’ Well they think wrong.

If it weren’t for coding,how could any developer come up with a intuitive app used by all of us? Or maybe program a robot for medical breakthroughs?

Jobs that are not even directly linked to computer science and coding – such as banking, medicine,journalism and – will also be affected by the need for at least an understanding of programming and coding. Coding is the key to all fields and careers in this world, and it is time to start noticing that!

Coding is our future, there will be one million more Coding jobs than computer scientists can fill. These jobs will be one of the fastest-growing and highest-paying sectors over the next decade. We have to prepare the next coming generation and expose them to the world of coding, as of now only 10% of school students have the opportunity of that.

We live in a digital world, where software is the language we speak.

Code powers that digital world!

An understanding of computer science is becoming increasingly essential in today’s world. Our national competitiveness depends upon our ability to educate our children—and that includes our girls—in this critical field.

Sheryl Sandberg
Chief Operating Officer, Facebook

Learning to code is useful no matter what your career ambitions are.

For most people on Earth, the digital revolution hasn’t even started yet. Within the next 10 years, all that will change. Let’s get the whole world coding!

Eric Schmidt
Executive Chairman, Google

 

This is what the leaders think, and that’s where the world is moving. Check out more inspiring quotes on Code.org.

 

 

The Language of the Future!

Coding is our futureStudents ask their teachers,”why do we need English as a subject, I’m speaking it right now”, and adults think knowing three languages is impressive. Well watch out everyone because there’s a new language just around the corner,and this my friends is quite impressive!

From 3 year olds to senior citizens, everyone uses technology. Honestly, one can not live without it,because our lives tend to depend upon it.

Any regular user who knows his way around his device thinks he’s a genius, ask yourself this, is he really? Do we all know what’s behind the attractive icons and windows to make it work?No we don’t, because the only thing that matters to us is the cover but not what lies inside of it.

Computers and phones are actually not that intelligent,but they are very obedient. They need some instructions to get themselves to work, so we users can do our job. Now how does one device obtain these instructions, that’s easy: through coding!

“Coding”, is telling the computer the step-by-step instructions, telling it what to do! It’s that simple. Coding is the key to all programmes and the language of the future!

Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful by all domains

Bill Gates

Learning to code will be a huge booster for your future, no matter what your professional plans may be. Learning to code will also make you extremely cool!
