Hi everyone! I'm Shivali, the founder and president of the local non-profit, Coding4Kids which serves elementary school children in the Milpitas Unified School District. We create coding curriculum and teach 85 students at several elementary schools the basics of Scratch. We are looking to expand our program through chapters to as many elementary schools as possible (even internationally!). The age group is students in third grade to sixth grade. We would provide you with the curriculum needed to teach. If you are interested in starting a chapter at one of the elementary schools near you, please contact me.

Who is building the curriculum?
1 month ago
Hi Derek! I actually create the curriculum on google slides so we can project the steps to writing the code on a bigger screen so all of the students can see it. Our current curriculum uses Drag N Drop and platforms like, MIT Scratch or Berkeley Snap. We choose this, as this is most likely the first time students have been exposed to coding. However, in January of 2019 I am working with a seperate team on curriculum which involves teaching students to build robots using Drag N Drop.

Hi everyone. Our new website is engagestem.org. Also, here's some more information about what we do:

Tech Literacy for Seniors is a program designed to help seniors become comfortable and capable with using their devices. We coordinate a network of chapters, led by Chapter Leaders and supported by student volunteers, which provide free tech help to seniors in the surrounding area. Typically, Chapter Leaders organize a group of volunteers and find a location to teach at (like a library). Then, they hold tech help sessions where student volunteers tutor the seniors one-on-one.

I am interested in programming but I think eventually I would want to have a management role in a tech company. Will a liberal arts degree give me the opportunity to find jobs in the tech industry or is an engineering school the way to go.

Thanks! Pomona is one of my top choices so that is good to hear. Still not sure if it would have more value than let’s say a technology school or an ivy

Hey Jesse - I work at a tech company called Everbridge and was previously at a start-up and in VC. You're asking a great question. Unfortunately the answer is, it depends. If you want to be an executive responsible for Product Management or R&D, then yes, you'll need a technical degree and background. However, if you want to be an executive more on the business side such as Marketing, Sales, Strategy, Finance, then there is less of a need to have a technical degree.

Hi Eric, thanks for your response. I would still plan on majoring in computer science if I attend a liberal arts school. Is that not considered a technical degree? Furthermore, do companies usually promote engineers to become executives on the business side or are those people usually chosen from different backgrounds. Thanks
Hi, do I want to be a software engineer but I am confuse about the major that is eligible in order to become a software engineer

If anyone has taken AP Computer Science, how difficult was the exam? I have very little programming experience

I took it last year and even without directly studying for it, I passed with a 3. So, if your teacher is good and has been actually been teaching you and giving you assignments that apply the concepts that are being taught, you should already be familiar with most of the concepts and have them memorized. It's not like I got a super good score but it was still fairly easy so I wouldn't sweat it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What's the easiest language to start with? I am interested in app development but am struggling to find a way to get going. Any suggestions?
Link

Hi Jill, if you are really interested in app development, you should focus on Java or C# for backend development and JavaScript for frontend. Python is good, if you are focussing on machine learning.

Btw: There is no easiest language. You have to understand the concept of programming. After that you will be able to learn any language.

Thanks Ilker!
Hey everyone! During my freshman year of high school, I wasn't interested in computer science whatsoever. Then, I decided to take AP Computer Science Honors over the summer, and am currently taking AP Computer Science Principles as a sophomore. I'm now leaning more towards computer science (or something else involving cs in the STEM field) for my major in university. One of my New Years resolution is to be knowledgeable in a few languages, but I simply don't know where to start. I don't know what topic I want to go into (web/app/game development, etc) and I've already read countless of articles on what programming language to start in, but I'm still lost. It would be great if anyone could give me insight on this. Also, if anyone knows any free websites/courses or good books that I can learn programming on with, please link them down below! Thank you! :)

Hi, I am self taught android developer, even though I was in University for two years before I quit, I count my self as self taught learner because mostly I got my knowledge from internet.

Yeah, you are right the hardest part of becoming self taught learner is finding the right path to study, which one should I learn first then whats next to learn, I was lost for many times just like you, sometimes I want to give up because i just do the wrong path I jumped too early to the advanced programming without getting the basic first, so I have too learn the basic and the studying the advanced topic again which is totally waste my time, so here I want to share my experience that I thought it's good path:

1. The first ever is trying to love what you are gonna learn, you can watch youtube video about the cool things about programming.

2. learn about basic programming languages at sololearn.com. I recommend to learn Python/Java first. In the middle of learning those language you might be struggle with some concept of the programming, like OOP(Object Oriented Programming), for the additional explanation about specific topic you can watch youtube videos, or just googling for article(Googling is the Essential skill for programmer).

3. After you can write a program you can improve your logic, algorithm, data structure skill at hackerrank.com or codewars,com

4. It's time to build real app, you can take online course at Udacity.com or Udemy.com or other sites, there are plenty of it. I was take some free and nanodegree program at udacity and the nanodegree one is amazing.

That's all that I can share the basic path to be a programmer, It's need a time to be a good programmer, don't expect it's need a little time to be a good programmer.

@Aditiya really good summary!

@Justina There are some good links below in this group that are also helpful but you need to decide what you would like to focus on first.
What are some good computer science programs in the US? I am interested not just in top universities. And also any summer school that has computer science focus?
