Brandix i3 supports global software coding initiative ‘Hour of Code’

A global cause dedicated to growing computer science education by making it available in schools, the ‘Hour of Code’ initiative selected Computer Science Education Week (9th to 15th December 2013) to flag the cause across several countries, advocating supporters to set aside one hour to teach children how to code and help them understand the basic mechanics of coding.

Thirty Sri Lankan children joined thousands around the world last week to learn coding, in support of the global ‘Hour of Code’ initiative spearheaded by the American non-profit, Code.org. The children aged 8 to 12 were introduced to the basics of writing computer programs at two sessions conducted by Brandix i3, the Brandix Group’s IT Consulting and Services Company. Brandix i3, for which software development is a core business stream, deployed its own development team to facilitate the training to introduce coding to children at a young age.
