Introducing data science to the next generation!

The winners of CodeForAsia’s Codeathon, who were the attendees of this talk, ranged from young students in primary school to university students from various ASEAN countries. One of the co-founders of Xaltius¬†was given the opportunity to speak to them about data science storytelling and the important of data science in the industry today.

The attendees were exposed to the various areas of data science and were given a pathway to tread on to ramp up their learning experience. Xaltius too as a company, gained a lot of insights and perspectives from the attendees, who highlighted how data science was being used as an art to solve various problems in their own countries, which was very valuable.


The codeathon event co-conducted with CodeForAsia was really gratifying, with us being able to give back to the community and plant seeds into a new batch of future potential coders.We conducted this event at NUS for over a 100 students and took them through the journey of web designing and how to create their first interactive website. It was really amazing to see as a company and aspiring coders, that the students were enthusiastic and keen to learn and grow.

Working with CodeForAsia was also really great, they were professional and understanding, entrusting into our hands the training program to plan and execute, that made the experience of teaching even more rewarding.

These are some of the comments we got from the attendees of the training event.
