The DIS-CODE project is organizing an International Scratch Jam from the 1st to the 21st October, where students from schools across Europe and beyond will have the chance to build and share their digital creations. The aim of DIS-CODE project is to develop digital literacy and mathematical skills for students that tend to be less interested in school and maths, especially by learning basics on how to program in an engaging way. To learn coding means to keep up-to-date personal competences and transversal skills, such as problem solving, team work and analytical thinking. The Scratch Jam is open to students from 12 to 18 years old and no previous knowledge of computer programming is required. The coding language of the competition will be Scratch.

Build your first website with Django Girls Brussels during our one-day workshop. The event is inclusive, friendly and safe. While the primary aim of Django Girls is to get more women involved in tech, we also welcome men and everyone in between. It will take place on Saturday 13 October 2018 at BeCentral in Brussels (Cantersteen 12, 1000 Brussels). We believe the IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. We want to give you an opportunity to learn how to program and become one of us – women programmers!
