BoF: Computer Science Education and Diversity - Emma Foley & Laura Reddy, Intel

No one can deny that computer science education is an important topic that is often overlooked by those who set the curricula, and it usually fall to professionals and company outreach programs to give children their first taste of coding. This approach can put more pressure on programmers at a time when the tech industry is starved of new talent. We're trying to pump up the pipeline, while trying to more forward in an under resourced industry.... this is what children will see, and that isn't a good influence. This is a follow-up from last year's conference.
