Introduction

In a world where data is the new oil, new technologies are being integrated an increasingly exponential rate in our daily lives. To become successful leaders of tomorrow students of today need a profound understanding of the digital world.

The Summer Coding Bootcamp was developed on the one hand, to meet the high demand for technology courses at the HSG, and on the other hand aims to give students a comprehensive introduction to the field. Over the course of two intense weeks, students will immerse themselves into the different aspects of current technology.

The course will teach you programming skills, focussing on Python, HTML/CSS, and more...




Summer School 2018 and 2019


“The amazing atmosphere during the SHSG Summerschool 2018 really kickstarted my motivation for coding and due to my learnings, I will be attending my first Hackathon this March! A huge thanks to the team for setting up this program and I can definitely recommend the Summer School to anybody that has interest in the world of coding.”

- Matthias Rossini, Bachelor Student

The Summer School 2018 and The Summer School 2019 were a huge success: Besides learning the fundamentals of programming and having workshops in the areas IoT, Web Development, AI/ML and Blockchain, the students could deepen their knowledge in a 3-day Hack in a coached group project.

The Summer School 2020

Because of the huge success of the Summer School in 2018 and 2019, we want to expand the Summer School in 2020 by offering three parallel runs with different focusses.
The fundamentals of programming will be covered in all tracks using Python. In a 3-day Hack you will have the opportunity to work on an own project in a group with guidance from the coaches.
