Teaching people to work with code, even if not from scratch, is a large of part of many developer relations roles. In her work at the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science, Felienne Hermans has researched how best to help children learn to program. A major outcome of that work is Hedy, a gradual programming language that works with the learner to help them unveil more and more of the language.

In this talk from DevRelCon Deep Dives, Felienne shares how Hedy works and what lessons it offers for people working in DevRel.
