What do you like most about CodeWeek?
The most amazing thing about Code Week is the fact that you can do it on your own, in the classroom, with colleagues, or with friends. You can choose from different types of enjoyable activities or come up with your own . My students especially like the Coding dance.

What are the top three reasons why everyone should learn how to code?
Coding is an essential skill for us and future generations, because it is an important part of digital transformation. In the future, many jobs will require coding skills. Also, coding teaches you how to think. During the coding process, you need to give a solution to an issue that involves intensive problem-solving skills. It trains your brain to think deeply, identify possible problems, break the problem in parts, and then put the pieces together with a solution. Lastly, technology has become a major part of our daily lives. We rely on technologies in data analysis, finance, the health sector, education, and every single step of our lives. Learning to code helps you understand the world and solve the problems we encounter every day.
