Where, when and how?

CodeCamp is running virtually this year which means that no matter your location, you can apply to take part! You can choose to attend one of the following weeks:

  • 9-13 August: Great Britain and rest of world (delivered in English)
  • 16-20 August: Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland (delivered in English)
  • 23-27 August: Poland (delivered in Polish)

We'd recommend attending the week that's delivered from your area so you'll get to connect with local mentors, but that's not mandatory.

The event will run Monday to Friday 10am - 3pm (BST or CEST) with an hour's break for lunch.

All you need to have to join us is a PC or laptop with a good internet connection and access to Zoom - everything else will be provided. And don't worry about your previous coding experience - whether you're a total novice or a bit of a whizz, the course will be tailored to your level of knowledge.
