From 7.-22. October 2017 the annual EU Code Week takes place!
EU Code Week is a grass-roots movement that celebrates creating with code. The idea is to make programming more visible, to show young, adults and elderly how you bring ideas to life with code, to demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn. The initiative was launched in 2013 by the Young Advisors for the Digital Agenda Europe.
EU Code Week is run by volunteers. Code Week Ambassadors coordinate the initiative in their countries, but everyone can organise their own code event and add it to the codeweek.eu map. In 2016, nearly a million people in more than 50 countries around the world took part in EU Code Week.
How to get envolved?
❶ Organize your own event
Anyone can organise a Code Week event. Don't forget to pin your event on the map!
Kids/teenagers/adults can organise coding events to show others how you create with code.
Schools / after school clubs / adult evening classes can organise events for their students. Coding online or unplugged is fun and teaches computational thinking!
Teachers and librarians who code can hold coding classes, share their lessons plans, organise workshops for colleagues.
Teachers and librarians who don't code can invite parents or students to teach participants coding.
Coders can organise workshops in local schools, hack spaces or community centres and invite people to create with code.
Code clubs can organise workshops for new participants and show then how to make a game or an app with code.
Businesses and non-profit organisations can host coding workshops, lend their staff to coach at different events, organise fun coding challenges, offer sponsorship for coding events.
