“Meet and code” 2019

European Week of Programming, an initiative in which “BOKAYA” association participated for the second year in a row.

This year, in the period from October 5 to October 21, 2019, 120 children and adolescents aged 14-24 years became part of the initiative. The initiative took place as follows in the town of Bregovo, the village of Novo Selo, the town of Vidin, the town of Dimovo, the village of Archar and the town of Gramada. The participants had the opportunity to touch the world of programming and find out “from the kitchen” how some things are done and how much easier it is than it seems. A guest speaker from Montana, Sibil Boychev, was invited to the events, who guided the participants through the world of programming. All participants received a t-shirt with the initiative’s logo and advertising materials. It was a surprise for each locality that the BOKAYA association held a raffle among the participants in each of the six localities, where a total of 6 people won a brand new tablet so they could have easier access to what they had learned during the “European Programming Week “.

This project is being implemented thanks to the support of the Civic Initiatives Workshop Foundation, SAP and TechSoup, within the framework of the “Meet and Program” initiative
