Learn how to code

By playing a game

Code is behind every interaction between people and computers. Coding is everywhere and plays a defining role when it comes to understanding a hyperlinked world. When someone learns the fundamentals of coding, not only does he expand the capabilities offered by modern technology, but also adopts a more methodical thinking and approach to solving everyday problems.

Purpose

The goal of this workshop is to give its participant the opportunity to understand the basic concepts of programming and the benefits of its use. Through a unique experience you will explore how a program works by creating a simple algorithm. The game will help you understand in more detail what it takes to write a program by yourself.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have become familiarized with the basic concepts of the coding glossary and will identify how its use has improved our daily routine.

In order to participate in the workshop, it is not required for you to have any previous IT experience. It is addressed to people who wish to understand the basic principles of coding and have a first go at it.
