Really enjoyed this programme which demonstrates the importance of simple logic in everything we do. Even includes a simple 'human' computer which adds up two numbers! Catch it on Iplayer while you can!

US are holding an 'Hour of Code' week in December. Great idea to reach some many students and teachers. Wonder whether we could adapt the idea for the UK, maybe as part of Science Week in March 2014. Thoughts?

I see that the BBC is to encourage everyone to get coding again (30 years after the great BBC Micro) in 2015. Excellent news.

Really envious of all of you attending the symposium tomorrow. It would have been great to meet fellow CCOW'ers and catch the buzz which is all around this community.

Having looked at the showcase, there are some really great ideas being shared. My effort is at https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1VR-PoyIB75htajvq4r5JdkzMz8ZX_bUCLbF7u3bO4bo/edit#slide=id.gf061dfc7_05.

Please join in and share/remix/adapt and lets all make something that we can all use.

Having spent all week trying to come up with some ideas for my project with the aim of delivering something valuable which would benefit the whole community, I have now come up with a number of ideas and have included my motivation/idea behind each one.

Enjoy!
