The seed to Code Excursion came the summer of 2017 when Louise and Corina had been trying to learn how to code on their own in Stockholm. They both missed a safe and inspiring space to learn and to share their progress with others. To fix their problem, they created Code Excursion! 15 women joined their journey and after 3 months of weekly programming sessions, they successfully graduated the front-end course.
We craved a save and inspiring space for women to be able to learn programming – so we created oneCorina & Louise, 2017

After Corina moved back to Switzerland, she was determined to bring Code Excursion with her. By chance, Corina and Céline met and connected through their shared values and their passion for coding. Soon after, they founded Code Excursion in Switzerland. The first weekly courses were successfully happening in Zurich and St.Gallen in 2018 and in Spring 2019 we spent a week in Portugal for the digital & detox camp.
Since 2019 Anina, Michelle, Bettina, Ina and many more coaches have joined Code Excursion on the quest to get more women into tech.
