20 September - 13 DecemberZurich & St.Gallen

Code Excursion is about learning in a flexible way with an inspiring and fun community.



How it works

For 3 months a group of motivated women, follows a highly trusted online course and learns what it means to speak "tech" and get hands-on experience with programming languages, frameworks and libraries. 

There will be keynote speakers to talk about technology-related topics so that one can get a better understanding of how things work on the job. 

All is set in a beautiful location and a great community so that you can just come and concentrate on the learning part. Together it is all not that scary!

Track 1: Build your website

In this track you will learn how to build a website from scratch (also called Front-End Web Development).

After the course you will:

  • understand what the following means and
    • be confident creating a responsive and dynamic website using HTML, CSS and JavaScript
    • use Bootstrap, CDN and Dom Manipulation
    • feel comfortable working with arrays, functions and objects
  • be able to build your own website
  • talk confidently to anyone about tech-topics

If you didn't understand any of these words above, don't worry! This is course is suitable for complete beginners but also anyone needing a refresher in front-end web development.

Hint: We will follow a full-stack online course, so if you are already more advanced, you are very welcome to join and skip over some parts to the back-end.

Track 2: Intro to Python

In this track you will make sense of terms like "data science" and "machine learning" and get hands-on experience around these topics. 

You will:

  • learn the basics of object-oriented programming
  • write code in Python that makes your life a little bit more convenient
  • talk confidently to anyone about AI, machine learning and data science

This is course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn the number one programming language currently used. Not to say the least, it is heavily used in Artificial Intelligence but also it is literally everywhere! From testing microchips at Intel, to Instagram, to video games. It’s tiny, similar to the English language, and has hundreds of existing third-party libraries. What more can Python do?

Organized by

Céline celine@codeexcursion.ch

As a physics student and artificial intelligence enthusiast, I love staying on top of the latest technologies. I first learnt some coding languages in school, but it took me a while until I really started to understand it. When I started working on my own projects, rather than just try to understand the lecture material, everything started to make sense. Since then, coding became an empowering and fun tool and I am hoping to get other women as excited about it as I am.

Corina @codeexcursion corina@codeexcursion.ch

Hey! I am Corina. I grew up in St.Gallen, but as I love languages and traveling, I spent last year in Stockholm where I started Code Excursion. Since then I have been learning how to code and want to help other women get in touch with technology to see that it is quite fun and not that scary. 
Drop me a line if you have any questions!
