Learn to Code is an hour of coding to introduce young people to the idea of coding. Programming, or “coding” is what you need to create your own programs and be creative with your computer. Today we are surrounded by technology. Many young people have their own tablets and smartphones, and yet few people learn how computers or software work. Programming is today a useful basic knowledge for practically everything, regardless of further career choices. In this programme young people learn how to get started. We show them how to engage and learn more to become a developer, creator or innovator.
