From OSCON 2014: Kids can start to learn to program at any age; I started at six. All I needed was tools, guidance, and encouragement. Once I got hooked, a whole new world of possibilities opened up for me. I could create my own video games instead of being restricted by the rules of games made by others. I could make my school projects cooler by adding a technological aspect. And soon, I was processing DNA and neurological data using algorithms. I love to share my enthusiasm for programming and hope to inspire you to share that spark with others.
