Whether you are a student, teacher, or someone working in another profession, computing is changing things.
We think it’s important that everyone has a chance to learn the basics of coding. That’s why ECDL Foundation is proud to support EU Code Week 2018.
Do you want to try your hand at coding? Why not see if you can figure out how our special Code Week Python script works?
Tip: If you don’t already have Python on your computer, follow the instructions on python.org to download and install it.
