Best Kids Coding Platform

October 24, 2022 · 5 min read

I grew up during the home computing revolution of the 80s when lot’s of kids like me persuaded our parents we needed a computer to learn programming - we actually just wanted to play games - but the joke was on us as we ended up getting sucked into coding anyway.

Games are so much better these days - but also so much more packaged - so how do you get kids into coding ?

There are so many options to choose from.

My son is 10, loves Minecraft, Roblox, and Fortnite - plays on Xbox and Android

TLDR - go with MakeCode
