Code is what makes your computer speak, braille pop-up, the internet search, and videos stream. So much of our world is becoming computerized, and we are depending on bright young people to understand code so they can engage with the products and companies currently insists, existing and make the ones we haven t even dreamed of yet. Learning how to code is a pathway to all kinds of careers in all areas of technology. Students should learn to code now so they can get jobs, work with others, and interact with the hardware and software applications that are inherently code-based.
The National Coding Symposium, co-hosted by American Printing House (APH) and California School for the Blind (CSB), will connect students, parents, and teachers with professionals in the coding industry to answer some of the questions students have about coding and coding careers such as: What do coders do? Is coding hard? How do you become a coder? What else can you do with coding knowledge?
