The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) found that in 2015 over 80% of Canadians believed that ensuring young people graduate with computer coding skills would likely increase the competitiveness of the Canadian economy. A Burnaby team of students, with grade 12 student James Kan at the helm, have made this their mission, organizing a fantastic coding event in partnership with Lighthouse Labs.
