Dynamik Technologies in collaboration with Bistec Global organised an educational programme entitled ‘Brunei Kids Can Code’ at Anggerek Desa Technology Park.

The programme kicked off with a coding competition starting yesterday and ending on September 11.

The competition is divided into two age categories – Syntax Ninjas (eight-12 years) and Code Pirates (13-16 years).

Fifty participants are taking part in the competition which offers cash prizes.

The competition opened with an introduction to coding and demonstration by Haris Walker and Danial Yus.

After the competition, the participants will receive membership to the Brunei Kids Can Code Club where classes will be held monthly to develop their programming abilities.

“We believe an early introduction to coding will generate interest and cultivate the passion of our youth to learn and develop coding skills,” said Dynamik Technologies Head of Corporate Services Siti Rozana binti Dato Haji Mohd Yunos.

“Programming is a highly sought after skill that we want to nurture in our youth for their and our nation’s future”.
