Watts 'hackathon' takes a step toward narrowing the digital divide
from Los Angeles Times
As high schooler Geovany Gonzaga typed lines of HTML code on a Mac laptop, a green Web page sprang to life on the screen. "If I could learn more coding I'd get more hooked on it," said Gonzaga, 16, who was trying his hand during a "hackathon" organized by Teens Exploring Technology, a South L.A. nonprofit that teaches computer science and entrepreneurship skills. Gonzaga doesn't have a computer of his own, so he uses school computers during lunch or after classes for homework, rushing to finish.
