During the quarantine the City of Aveiro worked to support remote education resources, keep attendees learning at home and giving them other free and online training opportunities like CodeHero.
Training is free of charge and there is no limit of participants. Each submitted application will be validated by the organization.
CodeHero was initially triggered to high school students and residents in Aveiro Municipality aged 18 or older, however, given the initial enthusiasm shown by other candidates the City of Aveiro decided to open the course to candidates based outside the municipality.
CodeHero comprises 52 exercises, combining different number of points, with a global score of 1645 points. Participants will achieve the maximum score if the 52 exercises are successfully completed, and they will be able to visualize the cumulative number of points while progress to the next exercise. Training period is approximately 1 month, nevertheless, its conclusion depends on time invested by each student. There is a reward system for the participants that accomplished maximum score in record time, there is a prize of 200,00€ for the 1st place and an honorable mention of 100,00€.
Despite the decision to open this training program to all participants interested in this field, CodeHero prizes are only addressed to all high school students and professional school’s students from the municipality of Aveiro and other citizens, aged 18 or older, based in Aveiro.
Since 18th of May CodeHero have more than 80 participants registered and some of them have already finish the programme achieving the maximum score.
After successfully completing the CodeHero training, all graduates will have acquired sufficient knowledge to apply for the 3rd Edition of Aveiro Tech City Bootcamp.
CodeHero will be available until 31st July 2020.
