The Petlja Foundation was founded with an aim of promoting and improving algorithmic literacy in Serbia. We believe that understanding algorithms, alongside the ability of algorithmic expression, is a fundamental skill that everybody needs to have. Our goal is to make programming accessible to everyone – children and their parents, students and their teachers, inquisitive technology enthusiasts and everybody else with a goal to acquire a new skill crucial for their personal and professional development. In that sense, we want to help educational institutions in Serbia improve their contribution to the development of algorithmic literacy.
Our team of experts created interactive educational materials for primary school students, which are accessible online and free to use for everyone who is interested in making their first steps in learning programming. We focused on Python programming language. We're also providing support for programming competitions because we believe that those who are talented for programming need to recognize and nurture their talent and we find programming competitions to be an excellent incentive for improving programming skills.
