EU Code Week is a grass-roots movement that celebrates creativity, problem solving and collaboration through programming and other tech activities. 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.

This year we are celebrating coding from 10 to 25 October 2020! Due to the current health situation, we are going to bring more Code Week activities online this year. We will be launching new fun and engaging activities that you can join remotely at home or in school.

Kick-off event: 8 October 2020

The Code Week 2020 virtual kick-off will take place on 8 October at 5 pm Berlin/Brussels/Paris time. The event will be streamed on Facebook Live, Instagram TV and YouTube Live.

Our exciting line-up includes guest speakers Thierry Breton, EU Commissioner for the Internal Market; Mariya Gabriеl, EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth; Mitch Resnick, Creator of Scratch and Professor of Learning Research at the MIT Media Lab; Linda Liukas, author and illustrator of Hello Ruby; and Dipty Chander, President of E-MMA French non-profit organisation that promotes gender diversity in tech.

And if this is not enough, the Code Week team will also be showcasing new website features, resources and challenges. Alessandro Bogliolo, Professor of Computer Systems at the University of Urbino and coordinator of the Code Week ambassadors will be telling you more about the Code Week virtual Treasure Hunt.

We will also be connecting with schools and students from all over Europe who will be sharing their coding stories and exchanging ideas with the guest speakers.

You will also have the chance to share your thoughts, ideas and ask your questions. All you need to do is tune in to our live stream on Facebook or YouTube on 8 October 2020 at 17:00-18.30 CET and comment or tweet with the #CodeWeek hashtag.

Featured open online activities

To make it easier to take part in Code Week activities remotely we are launching a calendar of featured online activities.

What is an online activity ?

Online activities can be any activity you would typically add or register on the Code Week website – the only difference being it will take place online. The idea is to make it easy for people to participate in coding sessions and workshops entirely online without risking their health.

Featured open activities

If you want, you can make your online activities available to everyone. People from around the world will be able to take part open online activities, either in English or thelocal language. We will select the most exciting online activities which are open to everyone and feature them in an events calendar on our website.

What this means for participants

Every day of Code Week, you will be able to browse the calendar and take part in the activities that interest you most. The topics of these featured events vary from workshops on robotics, e-learning courses,webinars to coding tutorials and much more. So, take your pick!
