Start IT Right with CS50x Iraq!

CS50 is the biggest class in the world for computer science and the art of programming which then expanded to other countries around the world. We decided to bring a world-class course to Iraq and thus we introduced CS50xIraq, which goes hand by hand with CS50x by Harvard, to contribute to the growth and development of the CS community in Iraq.

Background

CS50 (Computer Science) is an introductory course on computer science taught at Harvard since 1999 University and, as of 2015, Yale University as well.

CS50x is designed not only for majors in computer science but also for nonmajors. More than just teaching you how to program in any programming language, CS50x teaches you how to think more systematically and solve problems in the community.

Objectives and Goals

Because of the lack of competent developers, the tech market in Iraq is struggling to lay the foundation of professional products which is becoming on a large demand recently. Lack of competent developers is mainly caused by an incompetent education process. This is where CS50x steps in to find a solution to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, recent tech graduates in Iraq are facing unemployment problems, due to the lack of graduates skills required by companies which ultimately leads to a lack of competent developers to be hired, which suppresses the tech projects’ sustainability.
