Who we are

Co-founder

I am a creative person who loves to learn something new everyday. I am currently participating in a front-end web developer course. Technology always fascinated me, but I never felt like I can do it. After studying tourism, I still couldn't let go of the curiosity for coding, so I just started. You can do it, too!

Co-founder

As a physics student, I learnt some coding languages in school, but it took me a while until I started to understand it. When I started working on my own projects, everything started to make sense. Since then, coding became an empowering and fun tool and I am hoping to get other women as excited about it as I am.

Our Story

Code Excursion is a Swiss - Swedish initiative to get women from any background interested in programming. 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. 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 are happening in Zurich and St.Gallen in September 2018. With our aim in mind to inspire and motivate women to learn programming we organise a kick-ass coding camp in Portugal in April 2019!

What others say about us

"Code Excursion isn't just another coding course. It's more of a community where you get to meet other motivated and curious girls, learn to code together, help each other out if you get stuck somewhere."

"Code Excursion was an AMAZING experience! Always such a welcoming and supporting atmosphere - no pressure, no judgement. You get to be yourself and learn at your own pace. It was great that we met on a regular basis. Very motivating in itself, but it was always something I looked forward to towards the end of a busy week."

"I got a deeper understanding of programming as whole, pretty secure with basic front-end, some backend. Last not least, is the friendships that i hope to continue with."

"I loved it, was really a highlight of my week and felt so blessed to be a part of it. Sometimes it feel like there wasn't enough time, sometimes it felt like I was too tired :-D but it was great having the flexiblity to be there and to meet other inspiring women. "
