Vivacoder is an initiative to provide a comprehensive suite of talent and job-relevant online technological learning services in the GCC region to individuals and organisations. Vivacoder training programmes use guided learning paths, hands-on labs and skill assessments to focus on training students in software coding and cybersecurity. All the programmes offered are international certification based and in partnership with ITMO University, St. Petersburg, Russia and Infoshare Academy, Gdańsk, Poland. The training delivery format is either physical or virtual classroom, but students are also provided with the option of self-paced learning courses in collaboration with CertNexus, New York, USA. The rapid pace of technology today demands a learning approach that fits the needs of both the individual and the organisation. Therefore, Vivacoder provides the most up-to-date technology courses by tailoring them to the participants’ specific learning styles and needs. Throughout the duration of the programme, the participants are required to submit projects on topics learnt, creating a portfolio to validate the skills learned and developed. At the end of the programme, candidates present a final project to demonstrate their capability. Earlier this year, UAE earmarked October 29 as its annual ‘National Coders Day’, when everyone in the country is encouraged to explore their coding capabilities as the country pursues its aim of having the world’s largest per capita percentage of coders within 10 years. At the GITEX Global Leaders Vision in October 2021, Omar Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, said he believed the country could excel in developing women coders, bringing new employment opportunities to the female population throughout the Emirates. He also highlighted plans for the UAE’s Coders’ Society which will bring together the 60,000 coders already resident in the UAE.
