EU Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way.
The eSkills Malta Foundation is once again coordinating the EU Code Week initiatives. This year Code Week will be held between the 10th and 25th October 2020 all sessions will be held online. As most of you are aware for the past three years Malta ranked first in the number of coding events held per capita. Obviously, this would not have been achieved without your invaluable help and participation.
Once again, this year we are looking forward to your participation in the EU Code Week by organising events. Ideally, we target events for any age and on a variety of topics. As in previous years, participation would be FREE and there are no prerequisites.
