Willow thinks programming is a really important skill and all kids should learn it. It's also really good fun. Willow likes creating things, she loves starting with a blank screen and transforming it into something magical.
Coding lets her do this, so she wants to share how she got started and how kids and their parents can learn new things together.
Willow will show you Scratch and Hopscotch, then move onto Unity3D and C#, which is what she's learning with her dad now. It's a lot easier than you might think, even with all the squiggly brackets and semi-colons :)
Willow hopes this talk will show you that making real games is something you can do with your kids, and maybe you'll even learn new things yourself along the way.

From Scratch to Unity3D - Learning To Code By Making Games
Willow has been programming since she was seven years old. It started simple, with Scratch, but got more complicated as she learned more languages and platforms.
