"Twenty-two teams of eager young programmers (more than 120 kids) gathered recently at CyberHive San Diego, a shared workspace incubator that delivers business and technical support to early-stage cybersecurity and high-tech companies.
They gathered for CodeDay, a nonstop 24-hour sleepless sprint to produce the best computer program as determined by a team of local, professional judges.
"The League of Amazing Programmers is a nonprofit after school program that teaches kids the skill of computer programming.
Students from grades 5 to 12 go to the Carmel Valley-based campus and work with professional programmers on everything from creating games to making mobile phone apps.
June Clarke, 36, is the lead teacher at The League. The former software engineer left her private consulting company to take on the role of an educator.

I’m passionate about software engineering and I’m passionate about education so I jumped at the chance to become a volunteer teacher at The League of Amazing Programmers.
The League’s mission is to give kids the advantage they need to prepare for science and technology careers of the 21st century. They accomplish this using in person Java programming classes focused on the development of games, social and mobile applications and automated robots.
