Arlington, VA – February 27, 2017 - Color Coded Kids (www.colorcodedkids.com) will launch a 12-week program designed to teach students software development in its new location in Arlington, Virginia inside the Microsoft Store located in the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City. Classes begin April 29, 2017 at 1:00 pm for one hour a week. According to a report published by Microsoft, there will be 1,000,0000 unfilled software development positions in the US by 2020. Color Coded Kids is gearing up the next generation of technology leaders to ensure there is an abundance of resources for those unfilled positions.
“Although we are an inclusive organization, our goal is to expose children to computer programming at an early age to increase the pipeline of future engineers, especially in the minority community,” said Shay Gillespie, CEO of Color Coded Kids. Research has shown introducing a programming language in elementary school will create an early passion for computer development.”
