Code Alert: Tynker Wants to Teach Your Child to Tinker With Tech | AllThingsD.com | angel investment | Scoop.it

 

Krishna Vedati doesn’t want your children to just watch Saturday morning cartoons. He wants them to make their own.

 

Vedati is the CEO of Tynker, a “learn to code” platform for kids in third through eighth grade, one of many that have popped up in recent years aimed at parents who think computing skills are critical for their children.

 

But rather than focus on computer languages like HTML, the Mountain View-based startup teaches kids how to think like a programmer, he said.

 

“The way I think about programming is just like any other language the kids are learning today,” Vedati said. “This is just like another language, just a different set of life skills than if you learned French or Spanish.”

 

Consumer might want what Vedati’s offering, after results from a pilot of Tynker in Bay Area schools over the past year. The startup, which has raised $3.5 million in angel funding, was inundated with 10,000 new requests after openin up to educators nationwide earlier this month, the majority from parents eager to get their hands on a home version of the coding platform.

 

Vedati estimates that a home-based edition should be ready in the next couple months. However, for now, Tynker is only available to schools. The platform is free for educators, with an option to pay and upgrade to premium.

Want to get a great book about building your business, for free?

It's excellent, the title is 'Start at the End', by Dave Lavinsky from Growthink.

Here is the link: https://growthink.infusionsoft.com/go/book/gt4045/


Just pay for the shipping and it's yours (listed on Amazon.com for $15.61 + Shipping).


Here are a few endorsements for the book:


"As a business owner, I wish I had read this earlier in my career. Starting at the End makes so much sense, yet it’s difficult to do tactically without this book. This book makes your business plan and dream come to life. Read it, then do it." by Adam Shaivitz, Founder of 'Accelerate Performance Sales Consulting', and Author of 'Selling is Everyone's Business'.


"Absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!! Book. This is about as good or rather as great as it gets in terms of business education in a book. I love the writing style and the info is quite practical and easy to transfer into your everyday management as a business owner. Don't usually take the time out to comment on products - but for this one I really had to give it full props. BTW - For all those reading - this is a voluntary comment that honestly would have been against my conscience if I did not give feedback. Especially as the book was free... Great Job!!!! by Erica S. (spontaneous post on Start at the End's timeline).


Cheers!

Bitcoin, crowdfunding, foodie, usability testing, mobile events, and community sports startups landed a round of venture capital and/or angel investment. Apologies for the torrent of buzz words.
