Free coding education comes to Florence
The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library will host an open house on Thursday, Oct. 17 to introduce the S.C. Codes initiative in Florence County. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m.
SC Codes offers free online coding courses, mentorship opportunities, and career resources for anyone interested in programming — whether they’re brand new to code or looking to add technical skills.
Coding is the process of using a programming language to create computer software, apps and websites.
“This library already serves as a hub for education and community resources, so it’s the perfect site partner for programs like SC Codes,” said Lelia King, executive director of the program. “We’re excited to provide mentors and curriculum for the residents of Florence County who are interested in learning more about programming and the opportunities available for those with these technical skills.”
A collaboration powered by the S.C. Department of Commerce’s Office of Innovation and Build Carolina, SC Codes is a first-of-its-kind, state-funded resource that connects students with experienced industry mentors and provides pathways for continuing education and employment in technology-related fields. SC Codes has partnered with libraries and technology firms across the state to provide facilities and expert mentors to support and promote the free online platform and create a statewide coding community.
