Call for Applications 2017

Do you want to be part of creating the digital future rather than just watching what happens next? This is your call!

TheCodeToChange-pressreleasepics-12017 will be remembered as the year when impossible, rare and incredible things happened across the world, but also this could be the year when you started/buzzed your career in IT. We are happy to launch our call for The Code to Change programme.

About the Program

The full programme has 3 parts: a kickoff event, mentoring programme and work experience. You can either apply for the full programme or just the three-day kick-off event.
The kick-off event will be held on 13-15 December 2017 in Amsterdam. We will begin with a two-day coding bootcamp, interspersed with lightning talks from a variety of speakers. We will conclude with a one-day conference, that is open to everyone. Participation in the conference is not conditioned on being admitted to the bootcamp.

What can you expect during the coding bootcamp?

During these two days, our volunteers will walk you through the core concepts of HTML, CSS and taste of Javascript. It doesn’t matter if you never wrote a line a code until now, this is why you are joining our bootcamp: to learn. If you have some experience with coding you can join our intermediate group, as this year we will split the participants into 2 groups, based on their coding knowledge.

Based on exercises, examples, and teamwork you will get a taste of what it feels like to work in IT. But this is not all: during a series of lightning talks, our speakers will share their experience of many years in the industry.
