Driven by more than 1,100+ contributors, with a presence in 180+ countries in 60+ languages and millions of users, Catrobat is all about leaving a positive impact on our society.
Our society and economy is changing. More and more jobs are linked to ICT, and thus the need of skilled workforce is growing tremendously. On the other side a society of digital natives, which already grows up in an interconnected world of mobile devices and open knowledge, is taking over. Nevertheless, still too few teenagers are becoming creators of their own digital life, instead of just remaining simple consumers.
The rise of technology has shown that we have to go new ways, make our lives more digital and encourage teenagers to get involved in this new, digital world. Better education in ICT will foster the youth to get skills in these fields, enabling them to let their dreams become true and live a better future.ing
Free tools enable teenagers to take the leap from being a passive user to become a creative developer. With apps like Pocket Code, users get the chance to use their mobile devices in a meaningful and, most importantly, fun way without the need of being a professional developer.
The visual “Lego-Style” programming framework, which is used in our projects, enables everyone to design their very own apps, without any limitations such as there are in a common programming language. With the right tools, creating apps, games and animations can be as engaging as playing games and as simple as cooking! It can be learned by anyone, at any time, and everywhere.
We can give everyone with what they already have in their hands the skills to realize their own ideas and express themselves with digital technology, creatively in a fun and fascinating way.
