Jamaican Government invest in Coding Camp for young girls

DSC_9851Twenty-five female students, aged 11 to 15 years, are being trained to become coders, as part of the Jamaican Government’s thrust to increase skills in information technology for national development, and boost the number of women in the male-dominated field.   Coding is the process of writing specific instructions for a computer to perform a particular task or action, and it is what makes it possible to create computer software, apps and websites.
