Codecation is a motivating hackathon and a small-scale conference focused on exploring and sharing exciting ideas with like-minded engineers, all in comfort of beautiful surroundings. The perfect chance to explore that new technology you have not had time for.
Codecation 2019 was yet another awesome week attracting 17 developers to a sea side villa in Costa del Sol, Spain. This year, we also had the pleasure of hosting a guest speaker from Lund University - Ph.D student Adam Jönsson - sharing his research findings within novel nanowire III-V superconductor manufacturing technologies. The hottest topics for our one-week projects where machine learning, game hacking, security and AR.
Codecation takes me back to the summers I used to have as a kid - but now with an engineering degree.

Codecation 2018 was a week full of talks and coding spent in a mansion overlooking the Barcelona city skyline. With a main focus on knowledge sharing and collaboration, the event spawned several new projects - some of which developed into full blown start-ups. The topics that caught most attention among the attendees where web security, machine learning and crypto.
This was the best event of the year!

What is Codecation?
Codecation is a motivating hackathon and a small-scale conference focused on exploring and sharing exciting ideas with like-minded engineers. It is the perfect chance to explore that new technology you never had time for.
Each year, we gather 15-20 engineers and entrepreneurs to share experiences and build new things together. All participants are tasked with bringing a project idea to the event and encouraged to form groups in which the most popular projects will be conducted. Every participant is also encouraged to host one or more talks sharing their expertise within areas they suspect might be beneficial for the others to know about.
The competition pushes programmatic creativity to the limits with each group presenting their results on the last day of the event.
