Engineer's programming workshops help kids get expressive about coding

The Japan Times 

On weekdays, Daisuke Kuramoto, 36, is just another computer engineer who develops education materials for an e-learning content provider. But once a month, he becomes Qramo, organizer of a computer programming workshop for children. "If you say I am'teaching' programming, that's incorrect," said Kuramoto, who heads the Tokyo-based volunteer group Otomo. "At the workshop, I'm just a participant who loves to play around with programming." Kuramoto started the workshop in 2008 and launched Otomo the following year, recruiting professional programmers, computer science students, parents and others with a knack for the activity.
