A Software Engineer Has Put Together A Digital Resource To Help Parents Teach Their Children All About Coding
Software engineer Amina has created a digital resource booklet to help parents and their children learn to code.
The document, which can easily be found online, consists of a whole bunch of information, including the seven coding tips parents need to know and why guardians must educate their kids on the importance of tech and coding.
Amina has said: “Coding was a huge learning curve for me, and there’s so much information out there. I recently put together a beginner-friendly document with a breakdown of what my job looks like, what software and frameworks I use, all attached with free and beginner-friendly resources to get you started.
“The world is changing at a rapid pace, and with the digital space evolving, a skill like coding is extremely useful. I put together this roadmap for parents and children to engage and interact with the fundamentals of programming in a fun, interactive way.
“You’ll be surprised at how much children pick up, so please be patient with them and, most importantly, have fun. All the resources I’ve attached are free,” she added.
Amina has a YouTube channel where she breaks down what it’s like working as a software engineer, leaving a toxic work environment, and shooting your career shot. She makes the channel accessible by using subtitles and always has someone – usually Black – doing sign language.
She added in her blog: “Parents, I promise you coding is not as daunting as you think. I can totally understand the pressure of children a million questions when learning, and given the current climate, things can feel very overwhelming.
“I’ve created a table of resources that can help you get started with your child on their journey into programming, and who knows… you might end up enjoying it more than you expected.
