"Every day at First Code I work on a variety of different tasks including product development, teacher training, parent communication, and of course, teaching! I feel incredibly lucky to be able to combine my passion in technology and the endless inspiration from the kids we teach. When I’m not at office, you can likely find me trying out new recipes in my kitchen, reading a book or doing TRX in a park."
"Coming from a technology background, I believe the technology era has come and it will grow rapidly. Being a father, I believe the best I can provide to my child is to open her up to the technology world. It is amazing how FCA combines the next generation and technology, guiding the kids to become creators with technology. When I am not at work, I enjoy reading. I am a huge book lover."
"Now learning coding in my spare time, I believe in the value of coding in teaching young children that the sky is the limit. It's wonderful to see students proudly showcasing their work and staying back after class, excited to be working on more coding projects. Outside of First Code, I'm seeking Singapore's best coffee, binging on Netflix or browsing through new productivity apps and tech news."
"First Code’s culture is fun and enjoyable - we're just like family. I love the fact that everyone here is so open and supportive of each other. What really puts a smile on my face is seeing the kids showcase their work. You'd be amazed at what they can accomplish! In my spare time, I’m most likely playing basketball, shopping or chilling out with my family and friends.”
"Being an instructor at First Code is a fun and rewarding experience. With its amazing team and students, the First Code family is one that supports, encourages and learns from each another. The students bring so much energy and excitement into the classroom, and seeing them apply new and personal ideas to their technological creations, sometimes even beyond the classroom, is truly inspiring. In my free time, I enjoy reading fantasy novels, knitting, solving puzzles and eating chocolate."
"Having experienced first hand how technology is able to amaze, inspire, and have an impact on people, I feel privileged to be able to teach the next generation and provide the same experience to them. Seeing the satisfaction in students when they finish their project and the excitement to share and amaze others is very rewarding. Outside of First Code, I will be trying out and learning from the latest games, and spending time with family and friends."
"Rarely do you get to work alongside a group of positive, talented and motivated individuals all striving towards the same goal. First Code Academy is truly a special place! It’s unbelievable to see what kids as young as 4 years old can create nowadays. During my spare time, I enjoy fitness dancing, reading, and watching shows on Netflix."
"Working at First Code is such a precious experience, I get to fully utilise my marketing skills for children which I never thought of! Outside of First Code, I love going hiking and dancing with my family and friends!"
“I had an appreciation of coding and computers, particularly automatic processes and robotics since I was a child, but I wish I could start coding earlier. When I am not learning new programming and coding concepts, you can usually find me looking up movie and book reviews.”
"I found programming fascinating in the way that it mimics our world. I believe being able to understand coding concepts helps us to perceive the world better and solve daily live problems too. One of the most satisfying moments in coding is where you can create something useful and pleasant out of nothing but just concepts and codes, and seeing people benefit from it. I wish to see more youngster enjoy the same pleasure as mine by learning coding and applying what they've learnt."
"To me, First Code is a very special place where culture and talents thrive. Never have I been working in a place that is so young and energetic. It is my pleasure to be able to serve such a unique group of individuals."
"The vision of First Code really touched me and I believe this is the right place for kids to learn and have fun with technology. Seeing how driven our kids learning in class, I am truly impressed by their innovative ideas and it motivates me to go further in my work and outside of work to learn coding!"
"I love kids and I feel happy just by looking at them. It is amazing to see a lot of young kids showing off their talent. Following the trend in the world, I am excited to be part of First Code to help our students become future creators with technology."
"First Code is all about empowerment. I am impressed by the many creative student projects and how much they can do at their age."
"I love watching Netflix over the weekend. I love listening to Spotify on my iPhone. I love taking new courses on Coursera. I love booking flights and hotels on Expedia. What do they have in common? They are all disruptors in their own industry and have changed the way people live today. I believe what we do here at First Code will eventually lead to the advancement of STEM education and creative industries in Hong Kong because we are shaping our students to be creators with technology."
