Over the weekend Google along with the amazing people over at LOFT Institute held the first annual Google Coding Jam Session at the Boyle Heights Youth Technology Center near East LA in Los Angeles. This program introduced students in the community between the ages of 13 to 18 to basic coding, computer programming and software engineering careers through Google professionals & volunteers.
It was beyond awesome to see all these kids so passionate & dedicated to learning the basics of HTML coding & website development. During the jam sessions, kids were informed on everything from how to further their education in coding & technology to how to inquire with Google for internship/ employment opportunities. Programs, jam sessions & boot camps for children and young adults such as these are critical and so needed for this generation. Major props to the youth doing constructive & creative things with technology!!
