Saw Hadi Partovi give a great key note on coding and why everyone should be coding. Talked about his upbringing and how his father was able to teach him how to code and how that completely changed his life. On coming to America and the doors that were open to him because of this skill he had acquired.
Had two different panels,
one with college and career focus, and why we should be coing and learning new languages
Other with Middle school teacher, high school teacher, and high school senior, and they were focusing on how coding was becoming a part of their school life, and the opportunities and sense of accomplishment that they felt while teaching or learning codin. All three were female.
Student Showcase- they had schools from all over the inland empire and some SGV schools with showcase displays, showing their coding clubs, their robotics, or makerspaces, or competition squads that go out and compete.
Different type of conference for us. What are we looking forward to seeing/doing/learning?
Digital Learning Initiative
