Girl Geek Dinners Girls Who Code Dans le berceau du hacking Mothership HackerMoms est un hackerspace d'un genre nouveau : ils accueillent les mamans et enfants, y compris des bébés. De quoi redonner du baume au cœur à celles qui se désespèrent à l'idée de mettre une croix sur leur vie créative les premières années de la vie de leur enfant. Crèche, nom féminin, XXe siècle : lieu d’accueil pour enfants, âgés de deux ou trois mois jusqu’à 3 ou 4 ans dans un cadre spécialement conçu pour les tout-petits. Créée en 2011 en Californie, Mothership HackerMoms (MSHM) n’a pas déquivalent. J’ai commencé HackerMoms l’année dernière quand mon mari était soigné pour un cancer et que je venais d’accoucher de mon second enfant. Sortir de l’isolement De ce point de départ très particulier est sortie une communauté qui rend service et pas qu’aux mamans en détresse, comme l’explique la jeune femme : Je pense que, nous les mamans, avons besoin de nous amuser plus dans nos vies pour contre-balancer les injonctions à être une parfaite mère moderne. “Fem-mom-ists”

Seven kids coding projects that crowdfunded their first steps | Technology There's currently a big buzz around the idea of kids learning to code, fuelled in the UK by the fact that from September, programming will be part of the curriculum for children as young as five years old. There are also a number of communities emerging around this area: parents keen to give their children the chance to see if they take to coding; teachers figuring out what tools and languages to use in the classroom; volunteers running after-school coding clubs; and technology companies contributing funding and other resources. There's another growing community that draws from all of those groups, though: an online crowd that is helping a number of coding-for-kids projects get off the ground by pledging money on websites like Kickstarter. Those communities of backers are good for more than hard cash, though: they're providing early feedback on the resulting products, and spreading the word about them to other parents and teachers.
