Coding is an order given to computers to complete a mission, is a common language in the computer world. It is important and be used everywhere in human lives, such as smartphones or traffic network, it is the third common language in the world except English and Chinese, a CEO of a coding company said.


“Kids are learning computer coding nowadays in some countries, they know its importance,” ICanCode Founder & CEO Moni YL Law said. She said the reasons for AI developing so fast because it is not only learning to code but also doing machine learning.

"Learning coding is a way to learn how to solve problems,” Law said at Hong Kong Shue Yan University. The progress of coding includes computational thinking, problems decompose, pattern recognition and abstraction.

“Coding is not boring as you think, you can create many things on it,” she said. In the past, people are facing many numbers and symbols for computer coding. But nowadays, children are playing visual block for coding. She said people just need to drag blocks for coding since those numbers and formulas already do behind the blocks. “You can use coding to make games or websites, it’s fun,” she said.

In addition, Law also said that learning coding is related to STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning. It is beneficial for children to make use of creativity, practice, cooperation and individual learning.

“I agree that coding is a subject for students to learn in schools,” she said, “It’s like a new language for them to learn”. Since there are some countries such as Taiwan and Japan, computer coding is already a core subject for students to learn in schools.

“Kids can learn when they’re 4 years old, or elderly learn at 80, there are different levels of studying coding,” Law said, “coding is changing in a new era then new things appear”. She said online free resources make learning coding easier. “People can choose to study whatever they like in coding,” she said.
