The Calabar Coding Class 2021 will open tomorrow, Friday April 23, 2021 with 20 students expected to learn intermediate level coding.

The Calabar Coding Class 2021 is a program of TechShack Hub. It organized session one of the class in 2019 with 20 students.

In this session he students, all beneficiaries of the Teacher Essien Ita Ita Educational Foundation will be tutored on coding tools such as Html, CSS+, PHP and JavaScript said Jonathan Ugbal, one of TechShack’s Director.

“The idea of the Calabar Coding Class  which started in 2019 is to put the power to create innovative solutions to everyday problems in the hands of young minds.

“The world is moving away from desk and tabled based 8 to 4 or 9 to 5 jobs to more flexible cloud based jobs and businesses. And, in order to fill the gap in employment and employability, there is need to learn the basics of the algorithms which are basically zeros and ones that govern the digital economy that is worldwide,” he said.

He further disclosed that the foundation’s decision to sponsor 20 students for the Calabar Coding Class 2021 was a step in the right direction that needed emulation from others.

“What the foundation has done may seem too far-fetched as the benefits may not be immediate, but imagine a scenario where one student from here develops a voting system that will stop Nigerians from traveling long distances to vote when they could just do it securely over their mobile devices! The possibilities are endless in coding,” he said.

The school will run until Friday, April 30, 2021.
