Out of all the lessons I've learned from teaching young coders, they all have one thing in common: The power of open source and the importance of developing community.

About this talk

Lessons Learned from Teaching Young Coders

When Femi Owolade-Coombes was 9 years old, he set up Raspberry Jam, a coding club, to share his passion for tech with other young people. Since then, the group has helped kids with autism and Tourette syndrome find community. In this live talk from Red Hat Summit 2019, 12‑year‑old Femi discusses how the power of open source and community can unlock potential for young coders.
