Why Code? What Can I do With it?

Literally anything. Computing skills can enable students to pursue their passions, no matter what they are. Coding touches every field you could work in, from medicine to race-car driving. Even if being a software developer isn’t at the top of your list, fields like social media, music, crime-scene investigation,  video gaming, fashion, farming, government, education, design, manufacturing, or film and special effects  well might be.

What is Code?

Simply put, code is a tool that lets you write your story with technology.

If you can code you can communicate your ideas with a computer or a program so they can be brought to life in bigger, brighter, and more creative ways.
