Just in time for national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, the book introduces kids to basic concepts of software development in a way that is fun and educational
SAN FRANCISCO, April 23, 2020 — Sourcegraph, the leader in Universal Code Search, today announced the release of a digital children’s book titled Our ABCs: Always Be Coding. With most people working from home during national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, the book provides a unique opportunity for software developers to teach their children about their work. Developers with young children know the struggle of keeping kids busy and learning during this time, but could be running out of ways to do so. Our ABCs: Always Be Coding is a fun way to keep kids engaged while teaching them the core concepts of software development.
“Dinosaurs, llamas, and dump trucks are cool—but so is coding,” said Quinn Slack, CEO and co-founder of Sourcegraph. “We love software development and wrote this book as a fun way to share our passion for coding with our kids, so they know what we’re doing all day working on the computer.”
Sourcegraph provides Universal Code Search, which enables developers to explore and better understand all code, everywhere, faster. The solution improves developer productivity with code navigation and contextual code intelligence. Due to rapidly growing codebases, proliferating numbers of repositories, multiple languages and file formats, and a wide variety of developer tools, now more than ever developers need a single place to quickly explore and better understand all code, faster.
Coding doesn’t have to be as complex as the solution Sourcegraph offers, however. It can be as simple as ‘A is for App,’ ‘B is for Binary,’ and ‘C is for Code’.
