Every African-American Young lady in IndeedWeCode gets to dream big, imagine the impossible, shine bright, and be creative within the world of technology.

What is Coding?

Technology is a part of our everyday lives. As users, we rely on technology to help us do things quicker, easier, and more accurate. As a computer programmer or coder, a person has the ability to create software solutions. Technology will always evolve and new ideas will always be needed. Coding allows us to become more than consumers. We get a chance to use our imagination and “Dream the Invisible”, “See the Possible”, and be Innovative by “Creating the Tangible”. Learning to code allows us to have super powers that can change the world.
