How programming can help solve (almost) all your problems

Today I had a short talk with the students at my old high school in Slovakia.

We talked about informatics, data and the students’ views on its use in modern society. I strongly feel that programming will find its place in a lot of workplaces even outside of software engineering. We discussed their ideas, which I tried to illustrate by showing them some cool examples related to software popping up in unexpected places.

You can take a quick look at the slides, but unfortunately, they’re only in Slovak.

At the end, I presented my proof-of-concept idea of teaching a voluntary extra-curricular Intro to Computer Science course. I’ll post more information about this later, if someone signs up :)

P.S.: Check out the talk I did last year.
