SAP UA Attended and the Celebrity Charity Code Challenge in May 2015
Kwena Mabotja and De Wet Naude attended and participated in the Celebrity Charity Code Challenge event, to launch the Africa Code Week project, hosted by SAP EMEA CSR and Simplon in Johannesburg South Africa. The event was attended by South African celebrities, SAP employees and other industry players. Through the simplification of what has historically been perceived as a highly technical arena, SAP is making coding more appealing and accessible to a wider audience, starting with today’s Celebrity Charity Coding Challenge. SAP’s global coding experts mentored and coached the celebrities and will then continue with a Global Corporate Social Responsibility International Skilled Volunteering program. The ultimate goal of the Celebrity Charity Coding Challenge was to involve people who would normally have no exposure to coding, other than consuming applications on mobile devices or computers. Coding is relevant to all industries and to remain relevant in the 21st century it is imperative that skills are constantly updated.
