Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) has announced the launch of the second edition of the One Million Arab Coders initiative.
DFF revealed that registrations for the second edition of the initiative are now open to all Arab youth from across the world and the deadline for registration is April 10. Interested applicants can register on the website www.arabcoders.ae
The initiative was launched last year by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The One Million Arab Coders initiative includes three stages. The first stage features registering to join one of two categories – Arab students or tutors.
Following that is the second stage wherein applicants are required to complete several three-month virtual coding programmes. The top 1,000 students to be selected will receive certificates and enrolled in the Coder Challenge.
Finally during the third stage, the top 1,000 coders will compete in the Coder Challenge. The top ten students in the Challenge will be announced at the end of the competition.
A whopping prize of $1,000,000 will be awarded to first place winner. The remaining nine winners will be awarded $50,000 each. The top four tutors, decided through student votes, will win $200,000 each.
The initiative aims to provide young Arabs with the tools to build their future, starting with fluency in coding and programming. Furthermore it seeks to help them gain new employment opportunities and empower them with the skills needed to contribute to the development of the digital economy.
Such unique initiatives will definitely aid UAE to move a step ahead of the world in terms of technology and youth employment.
