Tackling the modern skills gap

Code for All was born in 2015, out of a social no-brainer: on one hand, in Europe alone there are 14 million people that are not in Education, Employment or Training, on the other hand, by 2020, worldwide, 4.2 million developers will be needed.

We’re tackling this skills gap in two different ways:

  • Through our coding Bootcamps: in 14 intensive weeks, we’re transforming jobless brilliant minds into Junior Developers, getting them back in the job market;
  • Through our Platform: hundreds of children in Portugal are having programming lessons with our computer science personalized learning platform, that empowers teachers and makes learning code a lot of fun.
