Schibsted Tech Talk: Empowering the next generation of engineers

The future is in need of smart engineers who will design and build devices, robots and software that will improve our lives. Computational thinking, which includes problem decomposition, data representation, abstraction and algorithmic skills,will be a fundamental skill set that these engineers will have, and, in fact, not only them but any person whose job involves problems solving.

Despite the importance of computational thinking, this skill set is still not widespread in the education of the children and youth of today. In this session different speakers will talk to us about how they are empowering the kids of today to become the engineers of the future.

We are very happy to announce that Linda Liukas from HelloRuby will be the keynote speaker of this exciting Schibsted evening. Linda is a Finnish developer and educator who has co-founded Rails Girls and who has written Hello Ruby: Adventures in Coding, a book to teach kids how to program in a fun way.

Accompanying Linda we will also have two educational organisations, CodeLearn and Girls in Lab, who will talk about how to bring computer programming and technology to kids.
