UAE Minister honours distinguished teachers and mentors in coding


Teachers were honoured by Omar Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, as part of the "UAE Codes" Day.

During the opening session held today marked October 29 as "UAE Codes" Day, a move that aims to spread coding knowledge and concepts, highlight talents and digital expertise, and honour the achievements of individuals in the areas of digitisation.

The event has been extended until October 31 and was held in collaboration with the Dubai Design District (D3) of Tecom group.

The ceremony focused on the skills, and talents teachers and mentors had and were willing to share with the next generations of coders, trusting their role as a pillar to build generations and consolidating coding and advanced technology.

Dubai Design District organised a series of events during the UAE codes initiative by setting up equipped booths and special spaces that encourage visitors and coders to code and take assessments in coding. The booths also include the coding ambassadors, one of the National Programme for Coders, to meet coders and share experiences.

Several entities have participated in the success of "UAE CODES" through initiatives, programmes, hackathons, and workshops. For example, the Emirate's school establishment, in collaboration with the National Programme for Coders, has organised Hackathons on Emirates towers Boulevard with the participation of 200 students from 50 different schools across the UAE.

The "UAE Codes" Day focuses on enhancing the coding community and providing an effective platform for coders to exchange experiences, knowledge, and coding skills to create a digital economy based on innovation and modern technology and build their coding capabilities and AI technology.
