About Code Excursion

Code Excursion is a female coding community where women learn programming. The focus of Code Excursion is to learn in a helpful, passionate and including community with a bunch of cheerful, curious and supporting girls who start the journey of becoming a web developer together. At the moment we have courses and events in Stockholm. Our friends in Switzerland have similar events in Zurich.

Background

The seed to Code Excursion came the summer of 2017. We had been trying to learn coding for a long time without much success. We felt like we were missing a safe and inspiring space to learn. To fix this problem we created Code Excursion!

Now

At the moment we have a Front End developer courses at the wonderful Knackeriet in Stockholm. These courses are 12 weeks long and you will learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Bootstrap and Github. Furthermore, we hold workshops about code related topics which are open for more girls. Stay tuned

Future

In the fall of 2018 we will start a new 12-week group in Stockholm and separate one-day courses in HTML/CSS and JavaScript. If you are interested in joining, follow us and subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you get the information! We are also planning to create our own digital course and a mentorship program.

Who We Are

Louise Serenhov

Founder

Student in Stockholm with a big passion for personal development, entrepreneurship and nature. Besides that, camping, hiking and biking makes my day :) I discovered coding when our startup suddenly stood without a developer and to my surprise I'm hooked. I value relations high and always try my best to see challenging situations as empowering.

Caroline Hårdhammar

Founder

I'm an engineer within industrial economics who realized that I like working with areas where people, technology and design meet. When I started working with UX, I immediately knew that I wanted to learn programming to really understand the essence of development of digital services and products, and I was later surprised myself about how fun I thought it was! Otherwise I love to go skiing, surfing, chips, rhubarb and dogs!

Lina Wingren

Event-manager

While my friends from Stockholm School of Economics wanted to be management consultants, I realized that my dream and passion were whiten marketing. Looking forward to working-life, I realized that the most interesting and fun projects were in digital marketing. In order to understand and analyze digital behavior in depth, I was convinced that I wanted to learn how to program. Through Code Excursion I've met amazing women with similar vision and passion like me! Fun facts about me: competed in figure skating on Swedish elite level, loves trips and all kinds of adventures!

Do you need a website?

We let our graduated students work on your real digital projects. We will mentor them while building and make sure you are satisfied with your project. We can create your project with a lower cost than a professional web development agency. It’s win-win-win. You get a less-expensive project and our students get real experience.

Words from previous students!

"Code Excursion isn't just another coding course. It's more of a community where you get to meet other motivated and curious girls, learn to code together, help each other out if you get stuck somewhere."

"Code Excursion was an AMAZING experience! Always such a welcoming and supporting atmosphere - no pressure, no judgement. You get to be yourself and learn at your own pace. It was great that we met on a regular basis. Very motivating in itself, but it was always something I looked forward to towards the end of a busy week."

"I got a deeper understanding of programming as whole, pretty secure with basic front-end, some backend. Last not least, is the friendships that i hope to continue with."

"I loved it, was really a highlight of my week and felt so blessed to be a part of it. Sometimes it feel like there wasn't enough time, sometimes it felt like I was too tired :-D but it was great having the flexiblity to be there and to meet other inspiring women. "
