We decided to make a coding cool for the young generation … and created a modern gamelike online tool for kids to explore programming. In this talk we’ll talk about the bumpy road we had during this fantastic journey. Morally, the mission was about modernising the approach to teach coding. Technically, it threw us on a neck breaking adventure from hacking a compiler to writing a high scalability SaaS platform to making Python wrappers around 2D JS game engine to writing serverless lambda functions on Azure and what not.
The great learning experience is a stepping stone to becoming a professional in your field. All you need to have is good motivation and a proper toolset. Having first steps in the right direction is crucial for a successful career and we’re here to help future developers.
This talk will introduce you to the latest tool we all were looking for.
In this talk, Ugnė Ubartaitė will take you through her journey in the mythical programming world of 'Angis'. She will review how different points were presented by the creators. From storyline and user interface to complexity of the problem-solving and how different Python programming concepts were presented for teenagers.
