TNBT has partnered with the talented educators at CodeCore to deliver a super fun, super collaborative, super wired weekend of awesome.

In two action-packed days, CodeCamp introduces young innovators to both front-end development (the things you see) and back-end development (the things behind the scenes) through intros to HTML, Ruby on Rails and CSS.

In-person attendance will be open to teens in grades 10-12 from across the Lower Mainland. Younger kids and teens from BC or other provinces are invited to follow along online via a livestream.

CodeCamp takes place on July 26th and 27th. Learn more online.
