We believe that the world would be a better place if everyone understood the basics of coding. At the same time, we have to be cautious that coding itself should not be the end goal. With the growth of AI, Big Data, Blockchain, and Machine Learning, we must remember that these are simply tools. They are a solution to a problem. At the heart of all of these tools is a human who created the code to bring them to life.
Learn to Think
Learn to choose the right tools to build the right solution for the right problem.
Our dream is to make Hong Kong a better place by supporting the growth of Big Data and AI technologies.
It is our mission to make Big Data and AI technologies accessible to every person and every organization in Hong Kong.
What they say
Seriously impressive school! Well-structured program combined with real-life projects. Definitely will recommend Code for HK to anyone wants to learn coding.
The curriculum has strike a great balance between rigor and practicality. It’s exciting to see how the quality of tech education in Hong Kong is matching that in Silicon Valley
Andrew is very committed to the tech community and I’m sure Code for HK is going to make a better tech ecosystem for all of us.
Dream team! Probably got the best teaching quality in town!
Coding is actually a lot more fun than I thought it was. I enjoy interacting with computers and learning how they work.
