What is coding?

From Google's CS First curriculum on coding (computer science):

Computer science is...

  • a theory and practice that allows you to program the computer to do what you want it to
  • a tool that helps you tell a story or make something happen with technology
  • learning key problem solving skills that are applicable across disciplines, driving job growth and innovation across all sectors of the workforce
  • a skill that teaches students how to use computers to create, not just consume

Computer science is not...

  • learning how to type
  • learning to use word processing, spreadsheet, or presentation software
