CodeWeek 2019



< ANYONE CAN LEARN TO CODE >​

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 5th and 20th October 2019.  As most of you are aware for the past two 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 organizing 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.
