Stories

Meet and Code connects thousands of people: representatives of nonprofit organizations, trainers, teachers, parents, SAP employees, volunteers and of course - children and young adults. Although all events revolve around coding, each has its own unique flavor and approaches digital skills differently.

Here you can see thoughts, ideas and stories behind the events. Who knows? Maybe you will decide to join our Meet and Code Community!
