The videos highlighted this week are geared towards getting young people involved in WordPress, blogging and programming.
As the grandfather of a 9 year old granddaughter, I find myself talking with her parents discussing technology, internet safety, security, blogging, programming, etc.
I would love to chat with someone who is involved in a program for kids. This is something that I have on my “To Do” list for the WordPress Community Interview Series. If you know of someone or would like to chat about the it, please leave a comment!
The first video is from WordCamp Cape Town 2015. There is a local program called Code 4 Cape Town that encourages young women to become involved in technology to create a greater diversity in the South African tech industry.
