Why Code?

Coding helps you develop many valuable skills!

  • Problem solving: Programming teaches you how to efficiently break down complex tasks into smaller and more manageable operations.
  • Persistence: Although it’s super fun, coding can have its challenges sometimes! Every programmer faces obstacles in perfecting their code but overcoming these challenges gives you a keen eye for detail and builds your grit.
  • Communication: Lots of coding projects require large teams to bring them to life. Working in a group setting will help you develop your interpersonal and communication skills.
