**🎤 TALK**
**Teaching JavaScript; problem solving by visualization**
Did you ever try explaining programming to a non-developer friend or partner?.
*You know, a variable is something that you can store something in, it can be anything and also nothing.*
*And a function is something that does something if you call it, but sometimes it doesn’t.*

Programming in itself is a very abstract thing.
The fundamentals are often the most difficult and vague thing to understand, so how can we improve this?
What basic JS tools can we exploit to teach common practices and logic to a new-born developer in a more clear way?

During this meetup I will discuss how visualization can help develop a strong problem-solving mindset.


**👨🏻‍💻 GUEST**
My name is **Robin Van Roy**, and I’m a visual content creator with a love for code.
I’m currently working as a frontend developer at ING Belgium, am the co-owner of a creative agency called RedBonsai and used to dabble in teaching web development at the Erasmus College Brussels.
