Computer programming, also referred to as Coding is at the root the creation of computer programs and applications today.
Qualifications and background degree are less of a limitation for people wanting to get into coding. Coding is about problem solving and logical thinking and as such some people who studied other degrees who possess this skillset have started programming seamlessly and have gone and excelled in the IT environment.
Some IT companies have even started training potential candidates after completion of their high school who show potential to be computer programmers even though they do not hold a Computer Science degree.
The need for computer programmers in South Africa and the rest of the World has increased exponentially but there is still a big gap in knowledge of what coding is and how it affects the World.
We would like to present an opportunity to teach coding basics to young girls and women in Cape Town, South Africa. To do this Womandla is collaborating with NetCampus and below are the details of the workshop.
