EU Code Week 2015
3rd edition of EU Code Week
The third edition of EU Code Week will take place 10-18 October 2015. Millions of children, young adults, adults, parents, teachers, entrepreneurs and policymakers will again come together in events and classrooms across Europe to learn to create with code.
The idea is to show how you can bring ideas to life with code, to make programming more visible, demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn. If you are a school, a kid, a coder, a young adult, a parent, teacher, a business – now is the time to start planning your Code Week event and put it on the codeweek.eu map.
EU Code Week is a grass-root movement run by volunteers who promote coding in their countries as Code Week Ambassadors. The initiative was launched in 2013 by the Young Advisors for the Digital Agenda. Last year more than 150,000 people participated in 4,200 coding events in 36 countries in Europe and beyond
As part of its strategy for a Digital Single Market, the European Commission is supporting EU Code Week and other independent initiatives which aim to boost digital skills, including programming, for different target groups. The Commission will also address digital skills and expertise in future initiatives on skills and training and will develop a digital skills strategy.
Businesses and non-profit organisations can host coding workshops, lend their staff as coaches in a "back-to-coach" action, organise fun coding challenges for students or offer sponsorship for coding events
