Code Day: How to Build Creative, Collaborative, Computer Programmers in less than 24 hours

By: Elio Grieco

The mismatch between the way jobs actually operate vs. the kind of talent that conventional education aims to produce is glaringly apparent. Working with creative and passionate people is something that everyone should be able to experience. The best way to give others this opportunity is to ensure there are plenty of talented people with which to work. As we enter the dawning age of augmentation and automation, workers need to be creative, collaborative, attentive to details and self-motivated enough to solve a new set of problems with every project.

CodeDay is a 24-hour introduction to that kind of problem-solving through computer programming, where many participants come with little if any background in computer science or programming.
