A couple of months ago, I was at a Tech User Group event and one of the presentations was intriguingly called “my life as a 12 year old software developer”. I assumed that this was someone with 12 years of experience, what I hadn’t expected was that our presenter was indeed just 12!
Josh, better known to the tech community on twitter as @all_about_code is a smart young man, very passionate about developing and coding, but not just about writing bits of code for games, or entertainment projects, what is really impressive is his passion for developing solutions to problems that he has seen in his own day to day world.
When I chatted with Josh, we talked about his fascinating EduPython project, where Josh is trying to provide a better toolkit for young students (from 7 years old and upwards) to learn how to code and develop software solutions.
I chatted with Josh a couple of months ago but thought i’d leave this interview as a little Pre-Christmas treat and couldn’t think of a better chat for the last podcast of 2016.
So tuck in, like it was your Christmas Dinner and enjoy!!
If you’d like to know more about Josh and his work, then you can find his website here.
TechStringy interviews are heading off on their Christmas break now, but they’ll be back in the new year and I already have some great shows lined up.
We’ll be chatting about the power of tech community on IT careers with the Tech Community superstar that is Amy Lewis (@commsninja), the importance of data management with Rich Wallace of @CatalogicSW and getting an outsiders view of the IT industry from technology journalist at CRN Hannah Breeze (@HKBreeze).

See you in 2017.
