i am a programmer, can you all share reasons why would you want your kids to study programming?

do they want it or parents feel this is a good skill to have?

At what age, do you think the kids will be ready to learn programming?

For programming classes, you can easily find introductory courses online! There are a lot of useful sites for example Udemy.

Hey if any of you feels overwhelmed by the sea of programming options for your kid, try this short quiz. You'll find out which programming language is suitable for your kid based on his/her interests and age group! Enjoyyyy

JavaScript is one of the simplest for children to get to know programming. They don't have to install anything new on their PCs or laptops. It can be done just using the notepad application in their machines.

By the way, I am helping to develop simple Javascript games that you can run on your favourite browsers (chrome, firefox, IE) without installing any additional programs, extensions or plugins.

If you have any simple games idea for educational purpose that you want to implement for your kids if you are a parent or for your students if you are teacher or tutor or you run a tuition or enrichment centre, feel free to reply to me. Price is very affordable (approximately $50-$250).

If you decide to engage me, you get this bricks game for free (JavaScript code, CSS styling sheet, HTML) that you can learn and play at the same time! :idea:
