Emirati coder Go to Initiatives

The Emirati Coder Programme teaches Emirati children aged 7-14 the basics of coding in a fun and interactive way. By 2020, the programme aims to teach 2,500 children the basics of coding and enroll 500 in advanced coding programmes. As of December 2018, the programme has taught 1,310 Emirati children from all over the UAE the basics of computer coding.

This initiative is of great value, whereas, it is estimated that 60% of high paying jobs in the future will require basic coding skills and coding is a key driver of the industrial revolution. Thus, the programme will increase the student's competitive advantage when job hunting in the future. This will benefit the UAE economy by establishing it as a hub for technology and sought-after talent.
