It's Time Your Kids Learn How to Code or Fall Behind

April 15, 2013 in Announcements (E)

[] Toronto, Canada - John Bura announces a new online course that aims to teach kids how to code, Kids Coding -Introduction to HTML, CSS and JavaScript. It's time to admit it, the anti-social, unkempt, thirtysomething computer programmer who still lives in his parents' basement is a myth. Today programmers have great job prospects, making on average 78k, which is nearly double the national average. They work for large corporations and small startups, the public and the private sector, for profit and nonprofit organizations. They can even start their own companies and then flip them for millions of dollars.

Ability to program is becoming as essential as the ability to read, write and count. The bad news is that the K-12 system hasn't caught up (yet.) The good news is that kids can learn how to code online.

Isn't programming too hard for young kids to learn? Not necessarily. Although C++ may not be the best choice for a first grader, kids can begin by learning some of the more forgiving, web-based languages like HTML, CSS, or Javascript. If your child can build a lego ship, she can learn how to build a website. Building websites teaches kids about time management, production, project management, and project execution, all invaluable skills for the 21st century economy. (Did I mention I.T. project managers make 90k a year?)

For a limited time only participants can enroll in this course for only $99.00 USD. Act quickly before this deal ends.

John Bura has been programming games since 1997 and teaching since 2002. John is the owner of the game development studio Mammoth Interactive. This company produces XBOX 360, iPhone, iPad, Android, HTML 5, ad-games and more. Mammoth Interactive recently sold a game to Nickelodeon! John has been contracted by many different companies to provide game design, audio, programming, level design and project management. To this day, John has contributed to 40 commercial games. Several of the games he has produced have risen to number 1 in the Apple's app store. In his spare time, John likes to play ultimate Frisbee, cycle and work out. Copyright (C) 2013 John Bura.
