Danny's daughter wants to learn to code. How can he get her started? Leo says that HourofCode.com is a great movement to get kids to learn to code. They have events, a curriculum, and a great place to start as a resource. Tynker is a good app for the iPad that will help her to learn iOS coding.

What about Code School? Leo says that is for web coding, as is Code Academy. But it's good to learn theory and different kinds of code. Leo suggests starting with Tynker to learn the fundamentals. Another option is Scratch. It's great for that. After Tynker, she should dive into Apple's Swift language.
