Founder and CEO of Hatch Canada, Peter Kuperman started the company to make computer science more accessible to children and to teach them how to code. In his free time, Canadian Peter Kuperman enjoys travel and once visited the location of the Battle of Vimy Ridge in France, which holds historical significance for him.

The 1917 Battle of Vimy Ridge was a World War I skirmish in which the Canadian Corps eradicated German defenses in three days. Many factors contributed to this success, including the use of underground tunnels and caves.

Visitors to the grounds of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial can see the Grange tunnel and frontline trenches that aided in the victory. Tourists can also see the giant limestone Vimy Monument and visit the two cemeteries that became the final resting place of 3,000 Canadian soldiers.
