    Microsoft Australia managing director Pip Marlow has led a campaign this week to encourage more Australian students to take up computer coding. The company is helping more than 7000 students learn code as part of YouthSpark #WeSpeakCode week. Federal communications minister, Malcolm Turnbull, also delivered a speech, in which he urged students to take up science, technology and mathematics subjects to fill the shortfall of Australian graduates in these areas. The week long campaign saw students from all over Australia try coding with the help of volunteers and teachers. Today, more than 800 students from more than 30 local schools in Sydney learnt to code at the main #WeSpeakCode event being held in the Great Hall of the University of Technology Sydney .
