James Flynn is an accomplished individual and a great person to boot. I have had the pleasure of working with him this past year and have seen first hand, his expertise and talent. As editor of the News section of The Varsity, he transformed the section for the better and has founded his own non for profit organization in Newfoundland. I have the confidence that he will find great success in whatever he does.
Code NL is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving computer programming education in Newfoundland and Labrador. As Founder, I am responsible for:
– Meeting with government officials, including the Deputy Minister of Education and Leader of the Official Opposition, to advocate for policy changes.
– Organizing coding boot camps for young people in Newfoundland and Labrador.
– Organizing monthly speaker events featuring technology professionals.
– Managing the organization’s communication and recruiting efforts.
