We give an opportunity to the youngest tech enthusiasts, the upcoming minds of our tech society, to show their creativity and innovativeness without limits at Codefest. We believe that this will be an unforgettable experience for them, and that it will have a strong influence on their motivation and love for technology and innovation. So far, Codefest was available to high schoolers and students, but our experience with it posed the need to make this available for the youngest as well declared event organizers in a press statement.
This year, around 15 exceptionally talented kids will take part in Codefest Junior, and together with the regular teams they will have the opportunity to get the full Codefest experience.
The motivation is that in upcoming editions of Codefest, Codefest Junior project will become a more serious part of the event where a larger number of kids interested in tech and innovation will be able to take participate.
Codefest Marathon is a 32-hour long programming marathonÂ for students and high schoolers, who together with their teams can develop their product and make it ready for a demo.
