National Coding Week 2022: September 19 to 25
Coding is a key skill in today’s workforce. It allows people to do their jobs more efficiently and independently than ever before. In fact, coding is an important part of nearly every industry. That’s why National Coding Week was created: to bring awareness about the importance of coding skills to people all over the world! This year, the National Coding Week will be observed from 19-25 September.
What is National Coding Week?
National Coding Week is a campaign led by volunteers in hubs, libraries, schools, businesses, and NGOs with the intention of supporting adults to learn digital skills including coding. National Coding Week was founded by former headteacher Richard Rolfe and tech entrepreneur Jordan Love, who was appointed EU Code Week Ambassador for the UK.
The first National Coding Week was held the week of September 21, 2014, with the intention of assisting individuals in strengthening their digital literacy in order to close the widening skills gap. When Rolfe and Love taught a group of jobless individuals how to code, many of them went on to find employment, and this gave them the idea for the week. In 2015, National Coding Week was celebrated from 21 September and spread beyond the UK. Today, National Coding Week is celebrated across the world, including in India.
How to Celebrate National Coding Week
You can celebrate National Coding Week by:
- Using coding apps to learn how to code.
- Coding with friends, family, and teachers.
- Coding at home, school, or work.
- Going to the library and using their computers there!
You should also make sure that you do not forget those who cannot use technology as much as we adults do because they might not have access to computers or smartphones (like many families in rural areas). This is why we need all of you out there who want nothing more than to help them achieve their dream of being able to read and write again!
If you don’t have a computer or smartphone, you can still get involved in the campaign by learning how to code! You can also help us spread the word by sharing this post and telling your friends and family about it.
Tell us how you got into coding / a digital job so you can inspire others or tag someone who wants to learn to code. Use the hashtag #Nationalcodingweek and tag us in – Facebook: @diceacademy or Instagram: @diceacademynewdelhi or Twitter: @Diceacademy1.
Why Should You Learn Coding?
Coding is a skill that will be needed in the future, and it’s important to learn now. It can be used to solve problems, create things, and even make money! If you don’t know how coding works yet, this is where you should start learning about it.
There are many different ways to learn how coding works, but one of the best places is at home. You can find books, videos, and websites that will teach you how to code in just minutes!
There are many free resources online if you’re looking for something that will teach you the basics of coding. For example, Codeacademy is a great website that teaches people how to code in an easy way. You can also find books that explain how programming works and how to create your own programs!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this overview of National Coding Week, and that it has provided you with some insight into the importance of coding in today’s world. As we discussed earlier, coding is one aspect of technology that is growing at an exponential rate. This growth will continue if we encourage people to learn how to code, which means that teaching programs need more resources than ever before. If you wish to learn to code, we have a unique 6-month web development course for you.
