Winchester examines coding

Librarian to discuss 21st century job skill

Sue Abrahamson will present “Coding – The Most Important Job Skill of the Future” at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 30, at the Waupaca Area Public Library.

Sponsored by Winchester Academy, the program is free and open to the public.

Abrahamson is the youth librarian at the Waupaca Area Public Library.

She will discuss the process of building and designing a computer program and how coding is the next universal language.

Coding has become a core skill that bolsters a person’s resume and chances of a well-paying career. Eight of the top 25 jobs are in tech positions, and software engineers could just as easily find themselves working in a hospital or at an automotive manufacturer as they could at Apple.

Supporting public education efforts to teach coding, the local Waupaca Area Public Library helps students and their families learn, understand and practice coding to solve problems and be creators of software instead of just consumers of software developed by others.

Cookies and coffee are served at 6 p.m. and the program begins promptly at 6:30.

Winchester Academy is funded through sponsors and tax-deductible donations.
