Atlassian co-founder Michael Cannon-Brookes wants to see young Australian children exposed to computer science and coding at a young age, particularly girls. Cannon-Brookes says Australia has a lack of people with skills in computer science and coding at the present time, and teaching these skills at primary school level would make students more likely to study computer science and coding as they get older. Atlassian allows its staff to take five days off a year to undertake volunteer work, and its staff in Sydney have been teaching basic computer skills to 55 schools for the past two years.
