“Talk is cheap. Show me the code.”Linus Torvalds
Coding is a basic literacy in the digital age. Coding or programming, how daunting it may seem from its title, is still a primary language that the computer recognizes.
Worry not; in This Blog, we will cover all about Kalaam Programming Language and what people can expect from this Language. We got some motivation at the end, so make sure to stay tuned to it all.
Who is Swanand Kadam?
Swanand Kadam, a 23-year-old Indian enthusiastic Computer engineer from Pune, Maharashtra, has maneuvered this issue. He firmly believes that “Programming needs to reach every part of India if we have to produce quality startups and technically sound ecosystem. Language and unfamiliarities should not become a barrier to these students to learn to code.”
We cannot agree more with this abstraction. It is not computer literacy that we should be working on, but a sort of human-literacy. Computers have to become human-literate.
The language should not be the thing to be dealt with; instead, the task which needs to be completed has to be the priority, which kalaam proves well.

Can you learn kalaam programming?
The Serious Question would be, Can You Truly Learn To CODE EVER?
To be a programmer is to sign yourself up for a life of constant learning. The fountain of new — new features, new languages, new tools, new frameworks—never stops gushing.
If the above quote describes you somehow, and the only thing that stops you is the language or the intimidating word Programming, you should start coding now.
As a rule, software systems do not work well until they have been used and have failed repeatedly in real applications. So if you don’t fail on your first try, then It s definitely something fishy going on.
According to Chintu from Whitehat jr., every kid needs to develop apps from his/her tender age. It is important for kids and young ones to understand and work with and understand the technology around them. Having children learn coding at a young age prepares them for the future. Coding helps children with communication, creativity, math, writing, and confidence.
Well, now the tables have turned. Even Chintu’s parents can start coding as well!
People who had fundamental to none knowledge in programming can code undoubtedly. Those who had difficulty comprehending keywords usually in English can code in Hindi and Marathi, adding support to more languages.
Kalaam program looks great and I love my daughter to learning coding from whitejr.
This is looking like a foreign language to me. Hehehe.
My bro is in coding, so will share this to him.
I am a parent, coder, software developer and a coding teacher myself and I totally agree kids should know how to code in this age of computer and internet. The earlier the better..
I would love my daughter to learn coding and she is very good as well as interested in it. But finances are just not helping us take that step. Let’s see in the future.
I had not heard about kalam programming before. Looking like a great option for learning coding. I m impressed with the fact that it is also available in hindi and marathi language. Thanks for sharing .

This sounds so interesting I heard first time about kalaam programming through your article only. My niece love to learn coding and programming will share this blog with her.

Like me, both my kids have very lil interest in programming but I know a lot of children who will benefit from Kalaam programming language. I love that you can code both in Hindi as well as in Marathi and that it has all the basic functionalities of a modern programming language.
I am not in favor of my kids learning coding at such a young age…. I feel there is time and space for everything. I personally feel that for some reason a hype has been created for all kids to learn coding or else they will be falling behind in the rat race n I for sme reason dont like this….
P.s I am not against the coding courses or kids starting early. Its just that I dnt feel comfortable about the idea.
True, I tried to endow the kids learning at their young age in a sarcastic way and one should not promote this rat race and let kids enjoy their own childhood time.
Never heard about this kalaam language earlier but it seems intriguing. Coding is a buzz these days for sure.
Coding is the need of the day. From kids to biggies everyone is trying their hand in coding. This is a great post.
Hailing from the medical background, I know zero about coding. Thanks to your post, I got some interesting insights on it.
Learned about this kalaam language and seems intriguing. Coding is a buzz these days for sure.
Never heard about this kalaam language earlier but it seems intriguing. Coding is a buzz these days for sure. I have a friend whose is quite interested in coding.
Will recommend her.
I honestly feel that if one knows how to code, he has a better understanding of everything that’s going around. I would like my daughter to start learn coding at the earliest. What’s the right age to start ?
My daughter loves coding . She had attended the program from vedantu . I am definitely gonna look in to this program too .
