For the first time ever, CodeDay will be coming to Vancouver.

CodeDay is a worldwide event where programmers come together to build apps and games for 24 straight hours.

The event is open to not just student programmers, but individuals of any other background and skill level. Complete rookies, seasoned veterans, HTML, C++, CodeDay is open to all.

At the beginning of CodeDay, everyone brings their own ideas and pitches them to a group. The group breaks into teams, and starts breathing life – or code – into the concept.

In addition to a coding marathon, the event also includes a “Beginner: Intro to Coding workshop”, where beginners will be able to make their first game. Included in the event is a competition that pits you against other cities, as well as a video game tournament.

Because the event runs overnight, participants will have the option to sleep over at the venue or, more realistically, code through the night.

Programmers and programmers-in-the-making will need to bring their own laptop and mouse, as well as a pillow, sleeping bag, and toothbrush if they intend on sleeping.

Tickets have yet to go on sale, however, you can register for notifications and more event info as it gets released. Ticket prices and location are yet to be announced as well, though food will be included in the price of the ticket.

CodeDay Vancouver takes place from Saturday, May 26 to Sunday, May 27, from 10 am to 2 pm the following day. The event is open to programmers aged 12 to 25.
