Microsoft Nigeria Trains Over 10,000 Youths On Coding
In a bid to make computer science more accessible to millions of youths around the world, Microsoft Nigeria has trained over 10,000 Nigerian youths on Minecraft Hour of Code Designer during the 2016 Computer Science Education Week.

Hour of Code is an annual, global campaign held during Computer Science Education Week to enable beginner coders to create and share their own simple ‘Minecraft’ game, and is designed to empower anyone to begin learning the problem-solving and critical thinking skills required in today’s tech-fueled world.
During this year’s Hour of Code, Microsoft worked with 126 non-profit organisations and other partners, in addition to 17 of its employees to hold several coding sessions in 19 states across all 6 geopolitical zones of Nigeria.

In the same vein, a ‘ready, set, code’ Hackathon was organised in Lagos Digital Village to further excite and inspire young people to realize they can solve problems within a short time with the right tools at their disposal.

Speaking on this year’s Hour of Code, Olusola Amusan, Philanthropies Lead, Microsoft Nigeria, noted that out of over 10,000 trained, about 8,237 students who had no idea of coding before the sessions could understand Minecraft and build games at the end of the program.
It takes so long to learn simplicity.
*In Davolee's (#YBNLPythoin) voice* KILO KAN MIN BE? (meaning: how does that affect/concern me)

When are they going to do the next one is the main important discussion.
