Over 800 Attend Hour of Code Event at Innovation Campus

The careers of tomorrow are here today.

Advances in technology have put computers not only at the forefront of most business operations but the driving force for their existence. While understanding computer science takes a great deal of comprehension and learning over time, it’s also something that can be taught and developed at an early age.

Lincoln participated once again in this year’s worldwide event known as Hour of Code.

Lincoln Hour of Code 2019

The world continues to rapidly change around us, especially when it comes to the evolution of technology. More and more careers are technology-driven, and our local businesses must not only understand these changes but employ workers that will utilize and adapt to them.

There is a popular event coming up, one that shows us that anyone can learn the basics when it comes to coding and a basic tutorial on the foundation of computer science.The 6th annual Hour of Code event is coming up on Saturday, December 7.

This event will take place on Wednesday, December 18 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Nebraska Champions Club, 707 Stadium Drive in Lincoln.

It wasn’t just hyperbole—there really was something for everyone.

An exciting Lincoln Startup Week from October 18-25 had many different events and meetups to take in, including the exciting and well-attended Inside Outside Innovation Summit. In its third year, the IO Summit, held October 20-22, brought innovators from all over the world to Lincoln with the goal of networking and showcasing and celebrating the local startup community.

Israeli startups looking to flourish in the United States

Innovation isn’t necessarily just about new things or inventions. Often, it’s about new value and new markets.

Which is why as Nebraskans, we look to capitalize on some of our natural advantages, such as agriculture and food production and how to maximize their capabilities for our economy and daily life. As our startup community continues to flourish in Lincoln, we must always look to new ideas and new ways to stimulate its success and its offerings.

At the end of September, the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development visited Israel along with the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Greater Omaha Chamber, UNL Office of Research and Economic Development and UNeMed/UNMC to attend various events that promote startups in ag-tech and food tech in Israel.
