Binary Kids: Teaching Programing to Kids

I have been developing software for more than 10+ years now! Like many kids my interest in software development started by playing video games. At the age of 15 I was digging into GW BASIC language. I still remember an awesome application I wrote where I created a smiley face and then used the timer events to open and close the eyes of the smiley, after that I was hooked.

I am very lucky to be in software development profession. A profession where you can never get bored. Every single day a new technology or framework is released, waiting to be explored. I wake up every morning and gets really excited about learning something new.

Binary Kids is my project to introduce my kids to the wonderful world of programming. Don’t worry we are not going to dive into Perl or Objective-C immediately. We will start from the very basics and I mean very very basic. Since, my kids are 5 and 3 I will have to explore the concepts of programing without a computer. This will definitely be an interesting journey and perhaps my most adventurous and ambitious project.

Binary Kids website will be used to document this journey! Hopefully, my experience will help you to introduce your kids to programing and build a better future!
