MESSAGE TO PARENTS
Why should your child learn to code? Well... coding is the new literacy and it’s rapidly growing! HTML and CSS are used by every website in the world, and it's a great place to start!
There are so many benefits - becoming fluent in technology, critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, great career paths and more.
Computers are a big part of our future and every child should learn basic coding, not just those seeking a career in software development. Even celebrities, CEOs, and those alike are finally recognizing the benefits of children learning how to code. Here's what just a few of them are saying:
"Computers are going to be a big part of our future...and that future is yours to shape." -Former President, Barack Obama
"Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains." -Co-Founder Microsoft, Bill Gates
"You can be good at technology and like fashion and art. You can be good at technology and be a jock. You can be good at technology and be a mom. You can do it your way, on your terms." -Former CEO Yahoo!, Marissa Mayer
Become fluent in technology
Interacting with technology is part of everyday life. Coding with HTML and CSS helps children create technology, express themselves in new ways.
It also helps them understand how many online businesses and services work.
Programmers are in high demand
Employment is expected to grow 17% by 2024 (via BLS)
According to the Bureau Labor of Statistics (BLS), the average salary for a software developer is $102,280 per year.
Learn to think and problem solve
Programming teaches children (and adults) how to solve large problems by breaking them down into small achievable steps.
These critical thinking skills can be cross-utilized in many areas of life.
Why learn from me?
I've been building HTML and CSS websites for many years. In college, I used to build HTML and CSS websites (along with WordPress websites) for local businesses, in order to pay for my expenses.
I love how simple HTML and CSS can be when it's broken down into achievable steps!
I still remember the first HTML and CSS website that I built for myself. It was a real struggle just to get it to look the way I wanted. I've kept everything in mind while creating this course. I'll explain each item step by step in its own video. I'll also be happy to answer any HTML and CSS questions you may have in the student forum for this course (available to enrolled students only).
