It’s a Thursday evening, and Camisa Vines and her teammates have just finished presenting the video-sharing app they built. Everything had fallen into place. The app’s user-friendly interface operated smoothly, the demonstration proceeded without a hitch, and the audience raved.
Not bad for three youngsters who spent just 12 hours learning to code and building the app from scratch.
“This experience has been amazing for me, and it really confirmed that I want to major in computer science in college,” says Camisa, 15, a sophomore at Clay High School in South Bend. “It’s always been a dream of mine to code websites and to be involved in the advancement of technology. So when I heard there was a code school, I had to be a part of it.”
