December is coming and we can already start thinking about Christmas, Online Coding Camps… and our 2021 Christmas Contest! Codelearn students can demonstrate their creativity through Logo, Scratch or videos so that they can have a chance to earn points on the online platform and other prizes.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects that are connected to the Internet and can also be connected to each other.

The term was used for the first time in 1999 and the Internet of Things is currently one of the basic pillars for the 4th Industrial Revolution, along with other technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data or Machine Learning.
Now that we know what algorithms are, we can continue learning other basics of programming that we can find in most languages. Remember that an algorithm is a problem solving procedure which consists of a well-defined, ordered, and finite sequence of instructions. To execute all these steps in the order we want, there are different control structures, such as conditionals or loops.
Autumn is here and we all know it is the spookiest season of the year. Therefore, from October 22 to 29 we will celebrate our annual Halloween Contest and students will find a special section on the platform where they can be as creative as they want and send their...

Since when do they exist and how do they affect us?
