What and how are kids learning?
coding is presented as a
force of change
: web dev, desktop & mobile apps, games, hardware
: self paced, self oriented, ”co-opetitional”, community-, mentor- & peer-supported
social and soft-skills

CoderDojo Timisoara
Timisoara Tech Entrepreneurial Ecosystem
13-15.000 employees, 1000 companies, 4 universities in ICT
~65 startups (www.TimisoaraStartups.com)
40+ specialized tech communities
100+ events per year
Startup Weekend, Startup Pirates
HackTM - biggest hackathon in (South-)Eastern Europe
well connected regionally

BUT we still need 500+ new IT specialists per year
Why is it THAT important to early educate IN ANOTHER WAY kids to code?
formal educational system is outpaced
it is not building on the native curiosity & creativity
it is not practicing learning by playing/by doing
it is not fully transforming the "user" in "creator"
it in not acting towards attitudinal & skill-set change
no care to the ”paying back to community” spirit
Above all, be cool!
in your city!
