Kids Tackle Computer Programming at the Great AZ Code Challenge


This weekend Infusionsoft in Chandler Arizona will be hosting The Great AZ <Code> Challenge, a two-day technology event where kids from all over Arizona will be building video games, apps or websites, meeting new people, competing for prizes, and learning about how coding can help them get jobs, start businesses, and make a "dent in the universe."

The Great AZ <Code> Challenge design team built a custom shaped die cut sticker, which was the perfect choice for our Spartanics laser die cut machine. The edges of the sticker feature multiple angles and paths, and as you'll see above, there's a tech-based theme and a fun mascot, plus standout event branding in the top left of the sticker. A simple two-tone, green-and-white color choice helps make for a sticker that pops no matter where it slaps. They use the same design on their website, but you'll notice that it's in purple online.

This event is open to kids from all over Arizona. It will be all kinds of fun, and it doesn't matter if attendees have been coding for years or they're just getting started. There will be classes and mentors to help coders of all skill levels, plus workshops about how many opportunities you have when you know computer programming. Also, swag: there will be plenty of food, t-shirts and, of course, stickers.

After the coding is over, all of the kids will have a chance to present their project to their peers in a "show and tell" session. Expert judges will choose winning teams and award awesome prizes at the closing ceremony, which is open to families and the general public on Saturday evening.

Good luck to all of the participants and thanks to the organizers.
