The European Coding Initiative, All You Need is Code, launched as part of the EU Code Week!

 Join today and explore the first industry-driven, localised online platform in Europe to promote coding education:

Students, teachers, developers or anyone curious about coding will find resources, tools, tutorials, training information on local coding clubs, and much more to get started. The website was launched today by VP Neelie Kroes, during the European Coding Initiative launch. The event featured a Q&A session with “All You Need Is Code” role models and premiere of “All You Need is Code” campaign video. 6-year old pupils were asked questions by VP Kroes and showed their passion and enthusiasm for coding, demonstrating how coding can be fun, playful and self-learning.

 While it is undeniable that Europe needs more computer scientists and engineers if it is to prosper and compete – the number of unfilled ICT vacancies in Europe is expected to reach 900,000 by 2020 – the ability to code is not a selfish industry ambition. During today’s launch event, Commissioner for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes called for an increased recognition of coding as a new fundamental skill for all Europeans as part of a broader digital skills set.
