At Branch, we are all about finding solutions and doing anything we can for our awesome developer community, but we don’t get to hear from
the next generation of devs too often. Recently Jiahao, founder of the Hack Club at San Leandro High School, got in touch with our Growth team with a simple request: to help get their club up-and-running and help support the start of the coder community at their school.
We couldn’t have been more impressed by the request, or happy to help!
Here are some words from Jiahao…
Hack Club SLHS President/Founder
The wide consensus is that schools aren’t implementing technology-focused curricula fast enough, with the mentality that being able to think in code and think about code is an effort worth investing in. Codeacademy’s Douglass Rushkoff stated in Forbes “It’s not a matter of high schools turning every student into a competent programmer; it’s more about exposing all the potentially great coders to computer science so that we give them and us a chance.”
We are so proud of Jiahao for representing programming at San Leandro High School, and for setting a great example for future technology-oriented clubs and programs.
