Dimitar Dimitrov, one of our EU Code Week Ambassadors from Bulgaria, recently had a lightning talk at Baruco (Barcelona Ruby Conference) about Europe Code Week 2014. He did a really great job at explaining what #codeEU is, and different ways for getting involved. Check out the transcript of his talk, and share it around!
People from all around Europe are encouraged to organize local coding events and workshops during the Europe Code Week in October.
The events are independent from each other and anyone can organize an event as a part of Code Week—especially any of you. Up until now, there are already over 400 events participating in Code Week, from all across Europe, including ones from countries like Turkey and Moldova.
There are no requirements for the events, just recommendations. It’s preferred that the event is as beginner friendly as possible and accessible even to those with little or no previous programming experience. The target audience are people from all ages, especially students and children. The size, the format, the tools and technologies used in the events are all up to you.
