Thinking about learning to code but you don’t where to start? Which language is the best fit? Why should you bother at all and: is COOK and CODE the right fit for you? In this interview series we are asking workshop attendees about their motivation and their learning experiences. Please meet Alicia:
What do you like about Cook and Code?
Could you name some situations where the knowledge of cook and code already helped you?
Do you think children should learn coding in school? If so: why?
„Definitively, I think it is important that they learn the basic concepts of coding as a general issue, technology is part of our lives and it is important to have a general background to understand it.“
Although being a mother and a freelancer, you also managed to attend some hackathons – what was your motivation?
„I like the challenge of making a project in such a short period of time with a team that I haven´t met before. I learn a lot on that hackathons, besides the technical things of programming, I learn about team work and stress management. And I can manage it because I get the support of my partner.“
