Tech outsourcing firm Accenture is expanding its coding tutorial to 15 languages in time for the Computer Science Education Week (December 3rd to 9th). This is to bring coding to more students from around the world through lessons in their native languages. The languages include English, Tagalog, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish and Vietnamese. Accenture is teaming up with Code.org to support ‘Hour of Code’, a global educational movement that reaches over 100 million students through a one-hour introduction to computer science. Around 2,500 Accenture workers have committed to teach an hour of coding in their communities. The initiative will help over 100,000 students across the globe to learn coding and computer science skills. Accenture’s chief technology and innovation officer, as well as chief coder Paul Daugherty, stressed the importance of equipping today’s students with skills since they will become tomorrow’s workforce. He added that harnessing their creativity and innovation can help to improve the way world works and lives.
