…as we’re reminded by CodeNow, featured at WhiteHouse.gov today:
CodeNow focuses on developing the next pioneers in technology by teaching underserved youth foundational skills in computer science and programming with the objective of narrowing the current digital divide. The organization teaches high school students the basics of computer programming and computer science in free, extra-curricular, off-campus trainings and boot camps. Each student who completes their program receives a netbook, mentoring and assistance finding internships.
…and by CodeAcademy.org, offering free programming lessons on the web:
Coding is not just for the chosen few. Anyone can learn with the right environment, resources and dedication.
