I love that! I agree that it should start with us learning more about computer science in general. And yes, Igor, there's still a lot to learn!
We see so much focus on how to bring computing and coding into schools, but learning about computers is something that should start at home, given the importance that they have in our lives.
Now it's a matter of how to make it easy for parents to bring the topic into their families, so we can all learn, together with our kids.
Funny that you mentioned the example of asking them to write a song with software. That's the topic around my next book. :D
P.S. As you can see, I also get very passionate about this!
Wow, great, when you expect book to be published!
I was thinking into writing (or collecting) set of 'tools' or 'practices' for every-day ppl... you know those little books for kids like '100 things you can make with paper' etc, so something like that but for adults (still not sure about the target group:). Where you could find dozens of ways to use technology and something from the real world. Emphasising using it as a tool. I just need to find way how not to sleep at night :))))
I love that idea, Igor! Let me know if you need help breaking the plan for it. I've worked on my books in between baby naps, so I might have some tips. :D
The world needs as many resources for this as possible!
(The first book is already on Amazon and for this one, I'm planning to open pre-orders in a month!)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
