Codefest2

Donostia / San Sebastian 2016 European Capital of Culture represents an enormous opportunity to turn the focus on culture and dialogue as the roads towards improved coexistence. Thus, Donostia / San Sebastian aims to become a benchmark in the sphere of creative processes and culture.

Inside the programme, we are organising Codefest: Coding for Language Communities event, that will take place from 4th to 8th of July 2016 in Donostia / San Sebastián.

Codefest summer-lab, aims to revitalise resource scarce languages by providing them with effective tools for electronic communication and by teaching their communities how to use them. http://dss2016.eu/en/dss2016eu/voices/codefest

This one-week long hands-on course will give participants the opportunity to become acquainted with the latest language-based technologies and to develop different apps based on them. Partakers will work in a multidisciplinary coding bee that will team up linguists, software-engineers and students.
