ORIGINS Team Joins Hour of Code

Coding is a recognized future-ready skill for today’s youth, and the ORIGINS team is living proof that everyone can learn to do it. Techie or not, this past Thursday morning ORIGINS’ Muhammad Azeem arranged for everyone in the office to put their fingers to the keys and take on a website coding session with support from BSD Academy in Hong Kong, who provided the learning platform. The Hour of Code event was a lot of fun and aligned nicely with the Code.org campaign to demystify coding and broaden participation in computer science. The ORIGINS event was one of over 157,000 events held around the world, and one of 216 held in China.
