Code Week 2017

Bringing ideas to life!

17th – 22nd October 2017 

"I am happy that this grassroots movement has grown so popular, especially since coding is becoming increasingly important in today's world. Confidence and creativity in using digital technologies are essential for everyone in Europe to participate fully in our digital society. Moreover, basic coding skills will most likely become indispensable for the future jobs."

Andrus Ansip, Vice-President for the Digital Single Market

In 2016, almost one million people (970,000) took part in one of the 23,000 EU Code Week 2016 events that took place in more than 50 countries around the world – a 70% increase in participants from 2015. Almost half (46%) of the participants were girls or women and the average age of a coder was 11 years. 2017 marks the fifth anniversary of Europe Code Week, which will take place during two weeks – 7-22 October.

The eSkills Malta Foundation will once again be participating in the EU Code Week 2017. This year the Foundation will be collaborating with various educational institutions, the industry and agencies. Different sessions on diverse coding subjects will be organized targeting different audiences.  The various sessions are aimed for all age groups (with minimal knowledge of computing required) and are all free of charge. 

Coding is for everyone. Try something new and discover the fun of coding by joining an event.
