As the second chapter of KuttyCoders wrapped up this 9th of September 2019, I would like to take you all on a walk down the memory lane of KuttyCoders.

“There are various diamonds that have been born in this world, who have changed the map of this whole world. Because they were able to see the world from a different angle”

Kuttycoders was a new venture for children with a passion for technology to learn new things and meet new people thereby immersing themselves in a growing community of doers. The first chapter of Kuttycoders was a 7-day Bootcamp, which was held during the summer vacation from May 20 to 26th. In the first chapter, we had 8 participants. KuttyCoders chapter 2 was scheduled for 7th to 9th of September, A 3-day Bootcamp which covered Basics of python, Introduction to Web development, Actions on Google and Kuttython ( A mini hackathon ). The second chapter witnessed 30 plus registrants and the event was received beyond our expectations.

Ever heard of an accidental community? KuttyCoders is one.

KuttyCoders was the result of TinkerHub’s Whatsapp group chat discussion among Shahin Abdulla, Gopikrishnan Sasikumar, Avinash S Kurup, Samir Dayal Singh and many more. Later that night we created a separate Whatsapp group to discuss more on the topic — Importance of coding at a younger age. We did a lot of talking and lots and lots of ideas were exchanged, everything converges to a single point conceiving KuttyCoders.

It’s not that they have the highest IQ in the state nor they are born extraordinary, But they have worked hard, they did an extra step to explore what made them curious, at times their parents took extra efforts. But seeing them in a couple of years, they became inspirational figures.” — Mr. Mehar M P, Co-Founder, TinkerHub

The idea is simple, We don’t want any students to bother about this that if they had done this earlier, the result would have been different. Finding your passion at the earliest will let you explore more on the field of interest.
