Coming Oct 17th, 2015 @ Carrer de Bailen, 11 (Barcelona)

WeCodeBCN is a one-day coding festival for anyone who has curiosity, creativity, and a keyboard. At the end of the day, you'll walk away with a fully functional website and all the skills you used to build it. It's completely free to attend, you just need to bring a laptop. Total beginners are totally welcome!

Why code?

How it works

What can you expect at Barcelona's first ever coding festival?

classes

You'll get a crash course in web development, starting with beginner classes in HTML and CSS. You will work with a teaching assistant who can answer your questions. Don't depend on the classes too much though; this is a different way to learn. We teach you how to teach yourself.

  • html
  • css
01

projects

We believe in learning by doing. You'd be surprised how quickly you can learn to write your first lines of code. You and your team will choose a project brief and complete the project by the end of the day. Each team member codes part of the final project. Your team will have a teaching assistant to answer questions and keep you on track.

  • real code
  • creative projects

people

You'll meet like-minded people who are also interested in learning to code, especially in your team. This event is for beginners, so there will be people from many different backgrounds. What we all have in common is an open mind with a passion for creating. Throughout the day, you'll be collaborating with a small team to create a website.

  • 500 participants
  • Teams of 10
03

fun

In addition to learning and practicing code, you can look forward to an exciting pitch competition. By the end of the day, your team will have coded a full website which you can present for the chance to win with some sweet prizes. And of course, what kind of festival would it be without an afterparty?
