“I think coding is a very, very, very big part of my life because it’s my daily routine: eat, sleep, code, repeat.

I LOVE it!

You can do so much with it.

And it makes you so creative. And it helps you think out of the box.

The standard ITC lesson right now, in the normal school, is learning how to use Word.

That’s rubbish!

You know, you’re never going to use Word as a job, you know.

The people who make the computers, people who made Word, they coded it. They didn’t make Word in Word.

I would describe it as the way that people make websites, your apps, that website you always use: Facebook, Twitter, Google — it was all coded.

I tend to think of ideas that can help the world — cause Facebook helped the world. It helped the world a lot. And when I find something that can help the world, I just start coding it.

If many, if loads of other children started coding, the job rate for coding would be a lot lower. But that’s a good thing because more people will have jobs as coders.

I think that if you open up coding, it’s going to be great.
