UAE launches new national programme to further develop coder ecosystem – The National

The UAE government launched Coders HQ, a new national programme aimed at developing the nation’s coder ecosystem, as the Gulf country positions itself as a global hub for innovation.

The project, unveiled by the National Programme for Coders in the presence of Omar Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, aims to nurture a new generation of coders, which, in turn, would allow them to design innovative solutions addressing local and global challenges.

The initiative, part of the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, was launched in partnership with more than 40 companies, including Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, Majid Al Futtaim Holding, Microsoft, Facebook parent Meta Platforms, IBM and Dell Technologies.
