EU Code Week is a grass-roots movement that celebrates creating with code. 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. The initiative was launched in 2013 by the Young Advisors for the Digital Agenda Europe. EU Code Week is run by volunteers. One, or several, Code Week Ambassadors coordinate the initiative in their countries, but everyone can organise their own code event and add it to the codeweek.eu map.

open to technology enthusiasts of all genders, backgrounds, and experience levels,
willing to coach or learn in a friendly environment. The learning materials are shared
and collectively improved by the online community and anyone is welcome to use it
to organize new OTS chapters anywhere in the world.
