What's on the Agenda to learn.

The two day camp introduces you to both front-end development (The things you see) and back-end development (The things behind the scenes). The Camp takes place at the offices of one of Vancouver's most famous tech companies - Hootsuite, where you'll get to see what it's like to work at a tech company. On Day 1 you'll learn HTML & CSS and build a personal profile web page. On Day 2 you'll learn Ruby which will bring life to your website. Hungry for more than knowledge? Don’t worry, we will provide you with free food and drinks! We also have awesome prizes to be won, such as: full scholarships grants for CodeCore's Web Application Bootcamps (a $7,500 value), EA Games and a tour of Electronic Arts, swag from Hootsuite, and more. You definitely won't want to miss this rare opportunity!

Why it's good to learn this stuff

Coding enables you to bring ideas to to life. Coding is the literacy of the future. Soon, it will likely be as important as reading, writing and basic arithmetic. Whether building basic websites, starting movements, or developing sophisticated applications, coding make it happen. Learning to code helps people think about solutions to problems in different ways. Coding is the language of developers. Developers and people who can work well with developers are highly sought after in the job market. Who knows where you'll be one day? Maybe you'll work at your favorite web company. Maybe you'll start your own!

“Creating things with your hands, or creating code, creating programs, are just different ways to express creativity.”

“I think that great programming is not all that dissimilar to great art. Once you start thinking in concepts of programming it makes you a better person.”

“Learning to code is useful no matter what your career ambitions are.”
