2. Who can attend?

The clubs are open for all university and high school students and you don’t need to have any previous experience. Welcome!

You don’t need to be a programming guru to attend. We have projects and guidance for very beginners also. More experienced participants can start a project straight away and beginners start with some learning materials before we help you on to your first project.

4. What time should I participate in the club? 

You can attend what ever time suits your schedule. When you come to the club for the first time, we suggest you come to the beginning of that session if possible, but otherwise you can attend when and for how long you please. For example, the session is held on Monday from 16 to 19, you can come at 17 and leave at 18, or however you please.

For most participants we can offer computers from the university. It’s also good to be prepared that sometimes there might be so many participants that some need to use their own computer. To be safe, bring your own computer and a flash drive.
