THE "CODE WEEK 2019" HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED

Publish date: 2019/10/20 | Expire date: 2019/12/05

During the "Code Week 2019" event (https://codeweek.eu/; https://codeweek.si) the Institute of Computer Science, UM FERI, organized the following workshops:

  • My first neural network
  • The first creative steps in computing
  • Visual programming with Blockly
  • Create your first 3D game
  • Android Apps
  • Programming for high school in Python
  • The basics of game programming in Unity
  • Creating simple games

Main goal of the event is bringing computers and computer programming closer to the broader audience. At the same time to demonstrate advantages of using and adapting computational power. Computers are entering in every aspect of our life. The question is if we know how to fully use this fast growing technology. Previous two weeks we organized seventeen events, which were spread in region of Eastern Slovenia, from Ravne na Koroškem to Ormož.

In a case you missed events this year, you might check again for them next year.
