Getting Everyone on the Same Page
An Imagine Cup finalist with visual scripting that helps teach code to everyone
by Dr. Rod Berger
Christian Diemers attends the Technical University of Munich, and he has developed a vision of the future based on his work there; a vision where everyone has access to technology and the coding that makes it run. This vision has taken him to the 2017 World Finals of the Imagine Cup, the world’s premier innovation and technology competition in Seattle. Christian appreciates and respects the different working styles he encounters, and has created a versatile tool for sharing ideas with friends around the world.
His Imagine Cup project, Koicode, is a web-based platform that provides visual scripting and code visualization for beginners. It features a complete visualization process for computer programs and the possibility to create methods with a visual scripting tool. As Christian says, coding is the future. He says that everyone needs to learn coding and computer science. Koicode helps people learn programming in an intuitive way, giving them the skills to create their own innovations.
