FOR US, It's personal

Paul Daugherty, Accenture’s Chief Technology & Innovation Officer and “Chief Coder,” learned to code as a kid and was instantly hooked. He had big dreams and that hasn’t changed one bit.

Today Paul is passionate about using technology innovation to change the world and equally passionate about ensuring that we keep the momentum going to give every child the opportunity to learn computer science.

Accenture's coding tutorial lets students learn about artificial intelligence by teaching a robot how to explore a new planet, and is now available in 15 languages: English, Chinese, Dutch, Filipino, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish and Vietnamese.
