All over Europe - Computer programming is being heralded as the new literacy, yet it is still widely perceived as a skill that can only mastered with a computer science degree. With the wider availability of internet connectivity and freely available, easy to use technologies, this is no longer the case. To encourage more people to create our digital future, events to celebrate coding are being held during the week of 25 - 30 November.

From simulating stars to simulating shopping - from finding your way through the traffic to finding the Higgs boson. Coding is a new life skill and coders are the new rock stars. So congratulations to all those taking part in Europe Code Week !
