Rebecca Garcia: Why I Teach Kids to Code

YOU DIDN'T BUILD THAT?: Here's a feel-good post, titled "Why I Teach Kid to Code," from Ms. Rebecca Garcia, co-founder of CoderDojo NYC and CTO at Greatist. CoderDojo is a "movement of free coding clubs for young people" originally founded by Mr. James Whelton of Ireland. Ms. Garcia's push for an NYC branch sprung out of her experiences at an iD Tech Camp and her work at We're reminded of Mayor Corey Booker's Stanford commencement speech on being a "conspirator of love."
