Stockholm student trio create children's book on coding

Three digital data strategist students at Hyper Island in Stockholm have created what they claim is they world's first digital children's book about coding.

Launch: The book will be printed in Swedish and English

My First Website: Cody Coder's Guide To HTML was created by Rosalyn Knapp, Lovisa Levin and Sanna Nilsson and is designed for children aged between three and eight, although the trio say the book can engage parents on the basics of HTML as well.

Levin said: "If the likes of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are campaigning for children to learn coding it's purely addressing the huge gap in current markets and in today's education systems."

Nilsson added: "Creating an experience where children can subconsciously become familiar and unafraid of handling code on a day-to-day basis, thus fuelling the next generation of code-savvy adults, or even developers, is so important to our core values and to a generation where coders are in such high demand."

The book is available as an e-book in both Swedish and English.
