We seem to have entered an era of evangelical codism, or at the very least society has moved firmly away from its Geek Chic crush to a firm and thorough respect of the technologist.

 

Computer Science has been irrevocably stamped onto the UK’s national curriculum; following Eric Schmidt’s plaint against the lack thereof, CS will become the fourth science in the eBac, establishing it first and foremost as a proper science in the minds and hearts of Britain; and ensuring that generations of little Brits will no longer be ferociously let down by the meagre offerings of ICT. (Though the turtles were great.)

 

The focus in the conversation about CS in education is often on taking computational thinking beyond coding or programming skills. However, surprisingly enough, most of us like to skip the physics/maths/statistical learning and get down to designing the next Metal Gear Solid. Don’t mind if I do. With the launch of the American Code.org in January, the movement is clearly global.

 

The shift in attitude towards computing recalls a much-needed shift in attitude towards the arts, and the relationship between the two. With the launch of NESTA’s Creative Economy Manifesto at the end of April, we saw not only compelling economic arguments for the support of the creative industries, but also a focus on a union between technology and art:

 

“All teenagers should have the opportunity to learn creative digital skills, such as designing apps and games, as part of a fusion in the curriculum covering technology and art, as well as maths, science and the humanities.”[1]

 

Short story long, great people are doing great things in the propagation of CS, ensuring not only that future generations of little people will understand their small screens enough to avoid being eaten by them, but also confirming that these skills are tools of creation and that combining the two sectors can only do good for the floundering economy.

 

But what about the big people, now that you have to learn how to code (you have no choice, will.i.am has spoken), and you’ve missed the boat with national education, which one of the free online or not so free coding courses will you choose?

 

Here is a round up of the few that we have tried:

This is another example of digital media being not-so-accessible to people all over the world. With record companies and artists feeling pinned in a corner, there are these situations to remind us that they can show desperation to generate more revenue. In their mind, the costs that a physical record would spike by being shipped to australia should be transferred over to a digital copy, even though the complications aren't all there.
