At some point in our lives, we've wanted to have a wand and somehow end up on a train to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (no? Just me?). Unfortunately, this guide won't be telling you how that's possible — instead, we'll be showing you how to connect the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit with your Kano Computer. Once finished, you'll be able to code with just a flick of your wrist. It's almost like doing magic.
