We had a great podcast episode with Rebecca Garcia on teaching kids to code, and we wanted to hear your thoughts on the topic. Most of you talked about the need for some level of exposure to tech, whether that exposure is in the form of a workshop, a course, or a passionate dev in your life. But there was concern over the pressure to learn to code or become a developer if the kid just isn't interested. We also talked about how in a lot of ways, coding is a means to learn how to solve problems. And what about the distinction between learning computer science and learning to code? Lots of great conversation in this one on a really important topic in education.
