Nicholas Kee – Born to programme
FOR MOST of us, computer programming is not a simple task. But for Nicholas Kee, this is something that came naturally to him. As a young child, he was always fascinated with technology and very curious about what happened beneath the interface. With this immense curiosity, he began researching how the computer works and developed an intense love for computer programming, which he began practising at age 12.
Now, 21 years old, Kee is the co-founder of Next Gen Creators, an international nonprofit organisation helping youth across the Caribbean and Latin America explore start-up entrepreneurship and computer science.
Kee shares that the community is very active and hosts a number of events, including coding workshops, code days, hackathons and pitch competitions. “Our most recent event to date was in July of this year at Startup Jamaica Hub. We hosted our annual Coders of the Caribbean hackathon.
