Get your kids coding with our new Code Competition

Can you write code like a python? Or are you more comfortable with Morse code? Either way we have something very exciting coming your way.

2014 is the year of code, it’s the most fashionable hobby to have (after knitting of course). We all know that in September, coding will form part of the curriculum for all children aged between 5 and 16.

With this in mind it’s the perfect time to launch our first ever code competition – Code.IT

Code.IT is the brain child of Adam Hepton, Frog’s QA Development Manager. He is extremely passionate about getting children to code in and out of the classroom, Adam is a also a regular at Code Club.

Code.IT is open to students of all ages across the UK and we have also got a special category just for teachers! You can code a FrogLearn theme, a game or a widget using the following types of code:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • Scratch

Don’t panic if you have never even entertained the idea of coding, we have a dedicated site with links to helpful resources and regular blogs from coding experts to help you along.

We have an expert judging panel including the whole Frog Development team. The competition is divided into age categories with the ‘Ultimate Winner’ being announced at Frog 14 on Tuesday 24 June.

The winning coders will spend a day with a developer, and the overall winner will get their hands on Raspberry Pi Starter kit.

So what are you waiting for, head over to the Code.IT site now!

Happy coding.
