Why learn to code?
Our way of working, communicating, shopping and even our way of thinking have changed drastically in the last decade. In fact, our whole world is in a process of transformation that is due to the technological revolution in which we are immersed and that will be even greater in the coming years. In this situation, learning to program and develop computational thinking gives us the skills necessary to understand the way the digital world works, and allows us to explore new ideas and construct new solutions for both work and leisure. More importantly, learning this new universal language develops our creativity, gives us new forms of communication, and gives us the opportunity to work in teams with wonderful people from all over the world.
