Short description of the session (~150 words):
I want to talk with the attending people about how it is possible to enable more people to learn coding and to use it in the Wikimedia projects. I use spreadsheets a lot and Wikifunctions as a new Wikimediaproject has as one goal that the functions who are collected in that wiki can be used by spreadsheet users. After Spreadsheets are used by a lot of people this can help expanding the number of people who are able to code and I want to talk with the people what they think can help learning it. I have a bit experience with SQL and R.
new contributors and people with experience in coding to share what they think helps learning it
What will participants get out of this session? (~50 words)
