Everybody who wants to get into coding!


  • Experience the power of coding and how it can help you with your daily work.
  • Learn the basics of a scripting language to get your coding journey started.
  • Create your very first self-built tool custom-fit to your recurring tasks.
  • Join a community of fellow learners to keep you going.



Learn how to automate repetitive tasks while getting confident in coding.

Coding is often seen as a kind of superpower. Only the “chosen ones” are able to practice this art. That’s wrong! Coding can be learned by anyone! In fact, a lot of developers learned coding on their own. Most of them started with just some initial knowledge and a motivation to make the machine do something they wanted. In this workshop we aim to give you that experience. We will provide you with that initial knowledge and setup to get you going and let your own motivation do the rest, step by step: We will provide you with a prepared project, give an introduction to its structure and make sure that everyone is able to work on it. Next you will alter existing functionality to get into the programming language. In the end, you will get the chance to build a completely new feature into the script. These exercises aim to get you hooked onto coding. To keep you going after the workshop, we also offer you to stay connected as a community of learners. For that we will set up a Slack channel you can join for getting and (eventually) giving support.
