All together now, it’s coding time

There’s been quite a bit of talk in and around Australia about teaching kids to code. By and large, I don’t believe that this is a really good idea, and I’ve had some vigorous discussions about this with many people, on the radio, in person, and on Twitter.

Some people disagree with my opinion (as evidenced by the fact that many seem to believe it to be a good idea) and that’s fine; I’m always up for a good and vigorous debate.

Mike Hadlow has posted his views (with which I agree) on this matter in a well written blog post, and he has put his views much more eloquently than I could hope to have done.
