I’ve been in the Software freedom day for the first time. Some of my friends gave a positive feedback about the day and the whole community.
My presentation was about: Teaching coding to kids, an option or an obligation. A lot of people found the subject very interesting and they discovered the Scratch programming language for the first time.
During the day, they gave 2 awards for the most active community. One was for the INSAT ANDROID CLUB and the other on was for me! I did not expect that at all. They appreciated my effort to spread coding culture in Tunisia and the workshops made with kids.
My student Kaouther Daly was a speaker in the DevFest Women organised by Google developer group Bizerte. She presented App Inventor as an easy tool to make an android App. By this presentation, a lot of people discovered that any one could make his Android App.
During this conference held in Tunis, I wanted to show the importance of Teaching kids how to code by showing national and international experience. It was an opportunity to show scratch and Arduino programming.
