Digital literacy becomes accessible to all with The HTML500 and Hour of Code

DH Vancouver Staff Dec 10, 2014 8:50 am

With the Hour of Code upon us, the initiative has reached tens of millions of students in over 180 countries to join the movement to demystify code and to embark on learning the basics in a one-hour introduction to computer science online.

Anyone can host an Hour of Code at anytime during this week to join in the celebration of Computer Science Education Week in the U.S.

So, how is Canada championing digital literacy? The HTML500, a Vancouver homegrown initiative, is giving people from all walks of life a free opportunity to learn code in person and possibly land a job in the tech sector.

The HTML500 and Hour of Code are providing free coding education for everyone and moves more and more people from being users to creators, especially since coding lays the foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

Here’s a sneak peek of what you can expect when The HTML500 hits Vancouver in January:
