Software development jobs are all the rage right now. Plenty of demand, high starting salary. And it appears that computer programming skills will become more and more vital in the economy of tomorrow. So what are we doing today to prepare our children for these types of careers?
Not nearly enough says Treyten Carey. Treyten was quite the coding wizard as a youngster - placing 15th in a nationwide programming contest in high school. Treyten is now studying computer programming at UNO by day. By night he’s running out a concept. The problem he’s trying to solve? Learning to code can be boring, especially for children, and especially when its something you have to do individually.
While Treyten might (he does!) have a clever solution to this problem, we first need to ensure that the market also believes this is a problem, and is motivated to solve it. So far, Treyten’s problem statement is validating among his primary customer segment: educators.
Know any teachers or administrators (elementary school, middle school, or high school) that wouldn’t mind taking a 2-minute survey?
