This October, Africa Code Week will embark on an ambitious project: giving 20,000 children across 17 African countries an introduction to coding, October 1-10. Based on a rationale familiar to coding discussions in the U.S., the initiative finds that traditional education systems are not producing Software Engineers at the rate the economy requires. Kickstarting broader coding education today will pay dividends down the road.
Two alumni embark on an exciting journey to teach, mentor and assist at a new coding school in Nairobi, Kenya. Students learned the ability to establish proficiency with new languages and frameworks.
