September 14, 2016: It’s official now: CODE will come to Berlin! We are very thankful for the political support we received from a lot of great people. This wouldn’t have been possible without you. Please read the official statement from Michael Müller, Major of Berlin (German).
The Code+Design Initiative was founded by the team of CODE to support young people between 15 and 20 to get in touch with coding and designing and find out more about a possible career in that area. Mission and projects can be found at the website code.design (German).
Just let us know if you want to visit!
As the Code+Design Camp in October in Cologne was an amazing experience, we did not think long to decide that we would like to take it on the road all over Germany.
So we are very excited to announce the dates of more Code+Design Camps in every mayor city.
We are currently planning a roadshow through several cities where we invite young talents to get together for an exciting evening at a great company. Professional coders and designers will join us and talk about their career choices and their daily life. Stay tuned for the dates.
As soon as our campus is ready, we will have a lot of open-door days for you to visit us and find out what CODE will look like, meet the professors and staff and enjoy the city of Berlin.
Subscribe to our newsletter to get an information when we are ready to announce the dates.
The founding team will be present at several career fairs for students, within the next month. Here are the next dates:
