"A pop-up coding school" is what we called it, speaking of how easy it was to hold a class and have quality discussions on problem solving with technology. This project was originally inspired by Hadi Partovi's Hour of Code.
Good Code was a collaboration between myself as a designer, and software engineer Carl Flor (carlflor.com) with the intention to make coding education more accessible. We constantly asked ourselves: "How can the knowledge of coding shape the way we look at problems, and in turn, the world we live in?" The process of finding answers to that existential question through the classes we've held has led us to friendships and experiences we'd never thought we'd have, if not for this initiative.
In 2017, Good Code was:
- a finalist for Globe Telecom's Future Makers program
- Makerspace Manila's knowledge partner
- a volunteer partner in Mano Amiga's Teachers' Day Off
