Praise for Teach Your Kids to Code:
★★★★★ “Inspired” – This is an inspiring course taught by an inspired teacher. The examples are well-chosen — demonstrating principles through engaging, colorful projects rather than by teaching abstract principles first. While I wish the instructor weren’t quite so repetitiously exuberant, this is at worst a minor stylistic blemish and might even be a plus for kids viewing it. — Kent Osband, Udemy student
