Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

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. Anand Raj, fea­tures edi­tor I’ve made it my mis­sion over the past month to take my ‘whin­ing and din­ing’ to Dubai De­sign Dis­trict. 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).
