10th — 18th October 2015 #codeEU

During Code Week 2014 all around Europe, more than 150000 people, young and adult created apps, websites, games and many other fabulous things by learning to code.

Now, Europe Code Week 2015 returns with many more exciting events and activities. Join us and spread the word amongst your community!

Why learn to code?

Today we live in a world that has been affected by rapid advances in technology. The way we work, communicate, shop and think has changed dramatically. In order to cope with these rapid changes and to make sense of the world around us, we need to not only develop our understanding of how technology works, but also develop skills and capabilities, that will help us to adapt to living in this new era.

Learning to code helps us to make sense of how things work, explore ideas and make things, for both work and play. What’s more it helps us to unleash our creativity and work collaboratively with wonderful people both near us and all over the world.

Get involved

We invite you to either organize an event during the EU Code week or join an event that has been organized by other people. To add your event to our Coding Map of Europe please visit our events page. You can use our #codeEU Toolkit for organizers and a list of resources to help you get started.

If you need help or have a question you can get in touch with EU Code Week Ambassadors in your country.
