    In Colombia, these courses will be held as part of the Week of the Code from October 6 to 10.

    The training will also be available in countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Puerto Rico.

    “One Time Code” is a quick course to learn how computer technology works and how to create applications.

    Meanwhile, “Learning to Program” is a virtual program with twelve modules that allows participants to discover application development tools.

    “Those who are enrolled in the modules need to know the technology development tools from the first steps to the final product,” said Microsoft.

    Young people will have tools like videos, downloadable files and assessments to deepen their knowledge.

    The initiative is supported in Colombia by entities such as the National Network of Public Libraries, the Makaia organization, Young Colombia and Bogotá Telecommunications Enterprise (ETB).
