While new students start in Raleigh, January also marked the beginning of Code the Dream’s Advanced Course in Durham. As students transition from basic programing to more in depth app development technologies, it’s been inspiring to watch them also develop a keener sense that this could be a real future.
As Cait recently said, “CTD has been an awesome experience. Ever since beginning the course in October, I find myself looking at web apps and wondering who built them and what languages they used. I try to deconstruct things like user logins and think how I would tackle that part of a project.”
Avi, who is still in high school, said he now plans to study computer science in college, and one day “start up my own business using the skills I have learned.” Cait agreed that she was looking forward to “following a new career path that allows me to utilize these new skills…. I can’t wait to see what’s around the next corner!”
We can’t wait to see it either.
