Anyone who wants to establish themselves in the increasingly digitized business world will need basic knowledge of a programming language or should at least rudimentarily understand how they are structured.
So-called MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses allow students from all fields of studies and almost all cities in the world a (free) pragmatic insight into the world of programming. Moreover, the in the online classes acquired skills are mostly documented in a certificate or a nanodegree.
The Students4Kids initiative seeks to promote and enhance the student interest in the possibilities of digitalization for social purposes, in particular for the prevention of diseases.
