Scratch Presentation at Ignite Phoenix by Jay McGavren

Video of Jay McGavren's 5 minute presentation on "Computer Programming for Kids" at Ignite Phoenix.

Watch Ruby on Rails developer Jay McGavren's presentation introducing Scratch at Ignite Phoenix, a speaker event for the Phoenix creative community, where presenters are challenged with only 5 minutes and 20 slides to inform the audience on a specific topic. This meeting's theme was computer programming.


The presentation took place at the Ignite Phoenix's 5th show held on November 3, 2009 in Tempe, AZ. Jay focused his presentation around 3 main topics about Scratch:

1. Why we need it

2. What it does

3. How YOU can save the world with it 




Jay does a nice job overviewing Scratch and how he stumbled upon it while trying to teach his son to program and how it spread from there. So how can you save the world with Scratch? Well, you'll have to watch the video to find out. The good news is that it's only five minutes long...
