Community Code Day

Description: ‘Community Code Day’ at Keyano College was very well received, and many young people came to learn more about technology. Fort McMurray’s Technology Conference and Hackathon saw the collaboration of local agencies: Youth Computing, BrainSTEM Alliance and the Keyano College Regional Innovation Network. This fun and informative day was open to community members who were invited to take part in the technology conference. Participants attended free workshops and presentations where they learned how to code applications, virtual reality, and much more. This year’s conference had a hackathon where teams competed to create a technology-based product that relates to the 2019 theme: Health and Wellness. Winners of the hackathon received monetary prizes and much more! A networking area was provided for participants to network and connect with other people in the conference. Many thanks to all who supported this amazing conference in our Region.
