Students will learn how to read and fix code, as well as learn about the diversity of tools available to continue expanding their knowledge of the subject.

For the third consecutive year, Popular will offer its coding workshop, “D-Coding,” for students in grades nine through 12.

The one-day free workshop will consist of three sessions to be held on April 24-26 at the Centro Europa facility in Santurce.

As in previous years, the workshop will focus on topics ranging from idea development, design and programming. Students will learn how to read and fix code, as well as learn about the diversity of tools available to continue expanding their knowledge of the subject.

“We have seen the impact of these workshops and we know the importance of the subject, which is why it is an initiative that we continue to offer so that the greatest number of students can benefit,” said Camille Burckhart, head of Information and Digital Strategy of the bank’s Innovation, Technology and Operations division.

Resources from Popular’s Technology and Digital Strategy division, as well as special guests, will be responsible for sharing information and guiding students through practical exercises. During the past workshops, 600 students from public and private schools from different parts of the island participated.

Schools interested in attending may contact (787) 765-9800 x. 505592 or write to dcoding@popular.com. Spaces are limited. Students must attend as part of a school group or accompanied by an adult for the duration of the entire workshop.
