At VII Tech Solutions we have spent over eight years developing websites and mobile applications. ‘Learning’ has always been the heart and soul of our company, and so whether we are talking about the Managing Director or an intern, we are always in the process of learning from the past, each other or clients in order to continue in improving our services. With this philosophy in mind, we were inspired to give back to the community and spread our knowledge to the youth of Bahrain so that they too can learn something new. In a world driven by creative and dynamic minds, we at VII Tech Solutions believe that young talent should be nurtured to develop their skills so that one day they may contribute to this thrilling and thriving industry.
Young Coder Club invites children of all backgrounds, both boys and girls, to join in on the summer fun whilst we pass on our knowledge in the hope that we may inspire young minds about coding.
Young Coder Club is an initiative to teach teenagers aged 10-14 years how to build a mobile application in just four weeks.
During the four-week program, participants will learn through the use of games, presentations and hands-on practice the nuts and bolts of programming and publishing an android mobile application.
- Learning how to build an application has many benefits for children, such as boosting their confidence and sense of accomplishment.
- During the process of creating the app, children will learn to solve problems and think critically about how to fix bugs in the code.
- Participants will also be working in groups of three where they’ll learn to work together and create a collective outcome.
The four-week program will be taught and lead by two outstanding people who have over 5 years of experience in building mobile apps and teaching programming to non-technical persons.
- Ahmed Yusuf was coding even before he went to university. He’s now a full stack developer at VII Tech Solutions and has taught non-technical people how to code for over two years.
- Zainab Mohd has taught IT throughout her university education and built outstanding apps both while working with VIITech and independently. Some of the mobile apps she has worked on are the Parent App (a mobile application that connects the parents of St Christopher’s students to the school) and the MOIC App (a mobile application for customers of the Ministry of Industry and Commerce) as well as many others.
Young Coder Club is the first initiative of its kind in Bahrain to teach children how to build a mobile application.
Participants will have fun, learn how to build an app or a game and maybe make new friends along the way.
The Young Coder Club will be held at the Shakhurah Youth Centre on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 pm to 6 pm.
Participants must bring their laptops in order to program. We’ll supply a mobile phone that they will get to keep once the course is over.
