Young people in the Cape Town area had a chance to learn how to code thanks to a successful coding boot-camp, run by ICDL South Africa in conjunction with ‘Kids Who Code’, during the April mid-term school holidays. The boot-camp formed part of the launch of the new ICDL Computing module in South Africa.

The coding boot camp took place over a two-week period, with 34 young enthusiastic learners. On completion of the one-day-long training camp, learners walked away with the basic knowledge of how to build their own website and blog, some even had time to get introduced to Python and HTML. The coding trainer, Thulani, had an energetic and vibrant approach to all his classes and adapted the lessons to the level of the learners.
