Hackathon Officially Over

Italy CodeWeek Hackathon 2023

Italy Code Week Hackathon 2023 comes within the framework of EU Code Week. 

EU Code Week is a grass-roots movement that celebrates creativity, problem-solving and collaboration through programming and other tech activities. The idea is to make programming more visible, to show young, adults and the elderly how you bring ideas to life with code, to demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn.

Italy is one of six selected countries for the Code Week Hackathon 2023.

The theme of this year is Code to problem-solve and give life to your dreams’. Under this theme, you will propose a solution to our country’s challenges for the education system, tourism, transportation and other sectors. Also, feel free to work your free idea as a solution that you think will help our community.
