The Gyumri Technology Center hosted the opening of the Yandex  Programming School

ArmInfo. On October 10, the School of Programming opened  in the Gyumri Technological Center - a joint project of Yandex and  the Enterprise Incubator Foundation. In the School pupils of 9-11  classes will get acquainted with programming and will discover the  prospects of work in the field of information technologies.

Applications for the School were submitted by 99 schoolchildren, 27  people were successfully tested and interviewed. Classes started on  October 4 and will last one academic year. Students will get  acquainted with the basics of programming using the example of  Python. This is a common and fast-developing language that uses many  services, for example Yandex.Taxi, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

"Now young people in big cities have many opportunities to learn  programming from an early age, but in regions it is much more  difficult. Having opened the School in Vanadzor, we saw with what  enthusiasm children learn, and how in a few months they create their  first programs. We hope that our new school in Gyumri will help local  high school students to master the specialty that becomes the most  popular in the world," said the head of the Yandex.Taxi international  development service, Mushegh Sahakyan.

"Several months ago, the Yandex Programming School started  successfully in Vanadzor. The important thing is that the organizers  decided to implement the program also in Gyumri, since it is  important for our country to make modern programming languages  available free of charge, especially for schoolchildren from the  regions. Taking into account the successes in Vanadzor, we are sure  that we will have positive results in Gyumri too. In the course of  cooperation, we attach great importance to the participation of the  private sector, which will contribute to the sustainable development  of the project," said Bagrat Yengibaryan, director of the Enterprise  Incubator Foundation.

"This program is very important for Shirak region, because  schoolchildren will have one more opportunity to study programming  for free and will be able to join the IT sphere. It is also important  that the teachers selected specialists from Gyumri who will teach  using the experience of Yandex specialists," said Amalya Egoyan,  Business Development Manager of the Gyumri Technological Center.

In Russia Yandex cooperates with schools and universities and  develops additional education programs.  Since 2007 in Yandex, the  School of Data Analysis is working - two-night evening courses, where  they teach computer training, computer vision, text analysis and  other disciplines. In 2014 Yandex, together with the Higher School of  Economics, opened the Computer Science Faculty.
