Wanted! Professional web developers and coders!
If so, we need you.
HPSS Code Academy is seeking industry professionals that might be keen to 'adopt' a coding student. Don't worry, there is no feeding or watering involved!
What are we looking for?
Basically we are seeking professionals who are willing to invest just a little time and effort in nurturing a young coder. This might range from a bit of encouragement via Twitter through to offering opportunities for a little work experience...even if it is just via Skype or a Google Hangout.
All the students are in Year 9 (13-14 yrs old) and are either beginners or recreational game/web developers. They are all super excited at the prospect of meeting 'real coders' and we are assuring they get the time and support at school to pursue their passion for coding.
Can you help? Or know someone who can? You needn't be NZ based, as we don't expect mentoring to take place f2f. If this sounds like you, or someone you know, please get in touch via Twitter @claireamosnz or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
