WHAT’S TEAM FRIDAY UP TO?
Last weekend I got a gentle nudge in the ribs that shook me out of my near Luddite-like stupor. This time it was at Downtown Dubai and, no, it was not during the power outage at a mall. I was at a centre that was giving coding classes to kids and I was gobsmacked to see a barely-four-year-old kid picking up the basics of computer coding. I’m planning to learn it myself, but before that look out for the feature on the importance of learning coding coming up shortly.

I recommend the cafés for good food, design (natch!) and ambiance, especially Chez Charles, The Lighthouse (chef Izu Ani’s new concept) and Molecule’s tuna and yellow pepper tartare (above).
