Code Hearted is an organization that aims to empower people through technology as a whole, but specifically - via learning web and software programming languages.
Learning and embracing technology and programming languages is instrumental to greatly enhancing not only the quality of personal life, but also their community around them. If you look around at cities and communities that have made the move to adopt technology as the foundation of their economy, you'll notice that they are either thriving or re-emerging from a serious economic downslide. A classic look at this would of course be the San Francisco Bay area, in particular - the Santa Clara Valley on the extreme end, and cities such as Cleveland, Charlotte, Austin, and others as far as cities that have revamped their economies after embracing technology.
Code Hearted seeks to demystify the image of being a web and/or software programmer, and help people to realize that virtually anyone can become a programmer. Additionally, we want to take away the stereotype that a coder strictly works on arcane end-result projects or high-level government, industry, or military projects. Code writers are called upon not only for their skill-set to write programs and websites according to specs provided to them, but also for their intuitive ideas and end result of providing someting of value for someone, some group, or for the world!
Code Hearted is more than willing to discuss how we can help you show your students the world of coding and technology! We're working on forming alliances with coding, programming, and technology professionals (and enthusiast as well) to help us set up workshops, provide training, and other things to help those who want to go along the technological route.
This organization is in great need of technology professionals and enthusiasts to volunteer their time to mentor those who look to Code Hearted to get rolling in a life of programming. We hope to set up workshops, and seminars, equipment donation drives, and activities that give people direct hands on experience with coding, and experiencing the world of tech. We'll need people with deep knowledge and understanding, and extensive real-world experience to pass it on and/or guide those who are interested in walking (or running) along the same path.
If you feel that you can make a substantial contribution in the form of time, talent, vision, or financing, then your contact is strongly encouraged. The main concern and needs of Code Hearted is to secure widespread promotion, publicizing, and growth.
We are STRICTLY A NON-PROFIT organization, but there will undoubtedly be costs that we will encounter. Code Hearted is indeed wanting to provide as many people (ideally younger kids who express a desire to begin the life of coding and/or other technology) with the FEW TOOLS they need, i.e. - computers, tablets, books, etc.
