Teach Your Kid to Code

Have you ever wanted a way to teach your kid to code? For that matter, have you ever wanted to simply be able to explain to your kid what you do for a living? Putting things in a context that a kid can understand is not as easy as it sounds. If you are someone curious about these concepts, this is a “can’t miss” presentation that will be co-presented by Justin Michelotti (6th grader) and his father. Bring your kid with you to philly.NET for this fun and educational session. We will show tools you may not have been aware of like SmallBasic and Kodu – we’ll even throw in a little Visual Studio. Concepts such as variables, conditionals, loops, and functions will be covered while we introduce object oriented concepts without any of the confusing words. Kids are not required for entry!

Have you ever wanted to have statically typed classes in JavaScript while at the same time being able to still enjoy some of the dynamic aspects of the JavaScript language? Have you ever wanted to be able to structure your team’s large JavaScript application code into dynamically loadable modules? Have you ever wanted richer tooling for JavaScript that is closer to what you experience with C# tooling? If you answered YES to these questions, then this is the presentation for you. This demo-heavy session will show numerous features that allow you to quickly and easily write JavaScript code that will run in any browser, host, or OS!
