Towards Transformation: Foundations - Everyone Can Code

 

Planning 

Technology has a language. It’s called code. And we believe coding is an essential skill. Learning to code teaches us how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. 

We think everyone should have the opportunity to create something that can change the world. Apple's designed a new approach to coding that lets anyone learn, write and teach it - and this session will help you explore and build practical knowledge to help you get started.
