Code For Life, teaching kids to code ( 01/03 )

Hi devs !
We are proud to announce a collaboration with Tech & Ladies group and their original idea  presenting to you this new event about the Code For Life project , a coding teaching software for students, and the experiences of Celine Boudier as Developer, Product Owner and Team Lead in the project, next 1st of March.



The app used in Code for Life is RapidRouter , a fun and engaging education resource which includes a coding game that helps teach children the basic principles of programming.


Built on 'Blockly', an easy-to-use visual programming language that's similar to Scratch, Rapid Router enables teachers to monitor and manage individual pupil progress and identify where more support is required. 
 
Celine Boudier learnt her first coding concepts in high school when she discovered she could program her calculator in Basic. She liked it so much she graduated as an ENSTA ParisTech software engineer. 
She worked for 7 years at Aldebaran (now SoftBank  Robotics Europe) as app developer, lead developer for ASKNAO, a project for children with autism, but also team leader and product owner. Now Team Lead for Code For Life at Ocado, she keeps on the path of technology for education. Her team works with a group of volunteers on free, open source coding games to help all students learn computing.

She will talk about her experience working on projects to inspire diverse students such as Code For Life, as a developer, product owner and team lead, from Paris to London.
 Dont miss this opportunity and register in the meetup, places are limited.

This time the event will be hosted ( giving the venue and food and beers ) in the Ocado Technology Barcelona offices, Avda Josep Tarradellas, 38, 8th.
