Young Rewired State is the philanthropic arm of Rewired State and is a network of developers aged 18 and under.

Its primary focus is to find and foster the young children and teenagers who are driven to teaching themselves how to code, how to program the world around them. This is a mighty challenge though well-supported with free tutorials online, but inevitably an isolating and solitary activity.

Young Rewired State developers, as well as developers from Rewired State and Coding for Kids will be taking part in an LWF hack style event, where everyone will be in a pod, coding throughout the entire conference, including the night - fuelled by coke and pizza. The pod will be open so everyone can come in and see what is going on and talk to the young programmers about challenges that might be resolved during the course of the conference - also people who are not already a part of the YRS, RWS or CfK communities can take part as well if they can programme or design. 

The resulting prototypes they have built will be shown just before the final keynote, in a rapid-fire 3 minute show and tell.
