Microsoft kicks off #WeSpeakCode campaign

Posted by pakin On March - 11 - 2015

Microsoft (Thailand) in collaboration with the National Council for Child and Youth Development (NCYD) and Change Fusion launched on Wednesday the latest initiatives in the YouthSpark #WeSpeakCode campaign in a region-wide effort to make code a second language in Thailand and Asia Pacific.

By the end of 2015, the campaign aims to inspire 20,000 Thai youngsters to try coding and realise their potential in today’s digital world of today.

The #WeSpeakCode campaign is part of Microsoft’s YouthSpark programme, a global initiative to empower young people to do more and achieve more in their lives by providing them with access to technology skills and a better education as well as helping them find jobs or to start their own businesses.

Last year thousands of enthusiastic young people across the region, Thailand included, had their first taste of learning basic coding skills, while many others took up more advanced challenges through hackathons and coding for social good.

This year, the campaign encompasses a series of coding activities including the #WeSpeakCode ThunderClap initiative, Social Media Contest and a major coding event scheduled for March 21.
