CEOs of tech companies in NZ agree that the biggest obstacle to growth is a lack of skilled computer programmers. Around the world there are moves to get more coding into schools and to make students aware that coding is fun and challenging. It is vital to the future of NZ tech companies that coding becomes part of mainstream society rather than lurking on the fringe. Massey University at Albany will host a coding workshop for students, teachers and parents - in fact for anyone who wants to know more about programming computers. Based in the Massey computer labs at the Albany campus, participants can experience hands-on coding, modifying applications and finding faults in existing programs. The aim is to make the public more aware of the world of coding and the challenges facing programmers as they attempt to create more sophisticated simulations and applications. No experience necessary and open to all.
