BRUSSELS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the second year running, EURid is happily participating in CodeWeek 2017. Aiming to make an even larger impact, EURid will build upon last year’s efforts with even more workshops and interactive sessions for children to take part in, all in an effort to teach them the fundamentals of coding and programming.
