Programming and AI: A Guide for Parents

I would encourage everyone to learn to code, I would encourage parents to learn what this is about so they can support their children. After all events such as Code Club or the Tech Jam would require parental permission.
It is also important for parents to understand so they can talk to their children about what they are doing, help them find information and sort out the bad information from the good, understanding how to use online forums and importantly stay safe by not sharing personal or private information.
While learning at home is possible, being able to meet up with other developers helps solve problems, builds social skills and you can get help with bigger projects leading to developing team and leadership skills, all very important to employers.
