From Extreme Coding Curriculums to Kiddie Coding Apps

Over the next decade or so, it's expected that there will be a huge demand for Computer Science jobs and if there's anything to about it now, it's introduce fun games, books, toys and other efforts that teach coding and programming for kids.

Although programming goes right over the heads of a lot of adults, kids and babies are practically born with tech devices in hand and seem to have an innate understanding of technology, due to being completely immersed in it. Even if parents aren't much help with teaching, apps like MIT's ScratchJr and Hopscotch app help to simplify the process so that even they can understand. Now, instead of passively watching an animation or playing a game, kids are actually being taught to build their own games and animations.
