Event description
In this event we try to answer the question: Can a project like HackYourFuture succeed in Aarhus?

About this event

HackYourFuture is a not-for-profit coding school for people with limited access to education and the labor market. The concept has been successful in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Brussels and inspired a range of non-profit code schools across Europe to follow on its path. Can the concept also work in Aarhus?

During this event we will hear from Co-founder Christopher Klueter about success stories from the project in Denmark so far, as well as plans for establishing a chapter in Aarhus and what is needed to get the project off the ground.

We will also be striking up conversations about how to foster a more inclusive and diverse tech industry in Aarhus, as well as what the real demands for Junior Software Developers entering the job market truly are.

Joining us in this conversation are local industry specialists, web developers, HR specialists, as well as HackYourFuture volunteers & students.

Tech Networking Expert Janus Boye (Boye & Company) will lead through the event and there will be some drinks and snacks as well.
