Past Events Rotterdam Austin Berlin Johannesburg

10 Days of Code (July 2017: Rotterdam, Fall 2017: Austin, Berlin, Johannesburg)


Days of code is a free ten day event during which you will learn to code by building your own project. It doesn't matter if you are a complete beginner or experienced programmer - anyone is welcome! The program is fulltime including three evening programs. See an example of last year's program here. During the event we will provide you with a mentor, free food, coffee and internet - all the things you need to build something great! We will ask you to contribute by summarizing what you've learned each day. On the last day we will consolidate this information into our syllabus. This way everyone can benefit from your learning :)


Being able to code is a crucial skill in the 21st centuary. The amount of vacancies within the IT sector are steadily increasing. So whether you are unemployed, bored at work or thinking of starting your own company, learning to code is the way to go!

If you are a complete beginner, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start. At Days of Code we help you by guiding you through the sea of training material available online.

Many experienced programmers struggle to find the time to learn something new or finish their pet project. Days of code gives you time and space to enable you to do this.

Who You Are

Anyone can learn to code. Whether you are a complete beginner or an expert , everyone is welcome. All we ask is that you contribute by allowing other to learn from your learning. We believe that a diverse group of participants will foster a creative and inspiring learning atmosphere. We are looking for people with a lot of enthusiasm and dedication who are willing to try something new.


Our application process is simple: please tell us a little more about yourself by filling out our online application form. We will then plan a short virtual interview with you and notify you at least one month before the event if you are accepted. If you are a complete beginner, we might ask you to do some pre-work (around ten hours) before participating.
