Good post Ollie - I like your ending. Of course, if we want to nurture young software developers two things must happen first: 1) schools need to give Computing as a Science much more prominence, and stop concentrating on boring ICT skills, and 2) myself and my colleagues as computing scientists must start delivering a curriculum that is up-to-date and relevant (Standard Grade still spends weeks on word processing for example - what kid can't use word at 14 years old?!)

Mark.
