WHY CODE?

Because it opens limitless possibilities to create, to engage and to be employed!

Coding isn't about sitting in front of your computer all day writing lines on a screen. It's about that 'AHA' moment when your screen comes to life with something you just built. It allows you to share your ideas and interact with the world. It can be a career, a way to complement your skills or a hobby in fulfilling your wildest and most exciting ideas and thoughts. It doesn't just open the door to a dream job, it will give you the power to create it. Maybe we don't all want to be computer programmers, but our future is quickly going to need us to either USE, UNDERSTAND or CREATE code. So why aren't we all learning? Maybe we just didn't know how easy it was. Through The HTML500 we are going to show the world that anyone can learn to code

THE HTML500 TOUR

When we ran The HTML500 for the first time in 2014, we were delighted to see Vancouver's incredible tech community come together to teach 500 people how to code. What's more, we had over 1300 people on the waitlist and received requests from all around the globe to bring this initiative to their city. In 2015, with the help of over 200 tech companies, we will be taking The HTML500 on the road! We'll go to four different cities, teaching 2,000 Canadians how to code, FOR FREE! So come join us in your city and let's all make a strong statement to Canadians and the world that anyone can learn to code!
