For all kids to learn coding, schools and communities need to get involved. For that to happen, the solution is free resources running on open source platforms. Keith Wilson continues to design and implement videos and pdfs while delivering workshops to teachers and administrators who are encouraged to plan content where coding is 'instead of' not 'in addition to'. Coding sessions in classrooms and other venues quite often use donated laptops refurbished with Linux distros including Mint and Ubuntu running, among other things, Scratch, GIMP, Pinta, Bluefish, Chromium and Spyder. Keith's most recent venture, using W3CSS website design for major upgrades to his own websites, have produced videos explaining the process. Learning to code is a right not a privilege and should be free. Keith is looking forward to sharing his experiences and learning from others doing similar good things.
