Working language is English, but don't worry, coaches know Swedish too. Some organizers Swedish is really bad, so you'd rather have it in English. Please bring your laptop.

Can men attend? Yes if there is enough space, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, girls are given a priority. Otherwise feel free to join our afterparty!

I know how to program - How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be coaches and organizers. We’ll have a two-three hour dinner on friday to walk you through the curriculum. The most important is to be enthusiastic! Email us
