EU Code Week is about getting children, parents, teachers, entrepreneurs and policy makers to come together in events and classrooms to learn programming and related skills. Check some coding testimonial videos.
EU Code Week is an initiative of the young advisors to European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes. The first EU Code Week took place in November 2013 and featured over 300 coding events involving more than 10,000 people in 26 European countries.
The initiative has attracted the support of coding and education movements like CoderDojo and Rails Girls and of major tech and IT companies like Rovio, Microsoft, Telefónica, Liberty Global, Google and Facebook who are all helping bring coding to millions of children by offering coding taster sessions, developing learning modules and helping to train teachers.
