Add developers and designers to your projects and organisation for fresh new perspectives. This way, solutions can be created and tested fast. Also, our fellows can advise you on technology, data usage, and information security.

Hackathons, concept challenges and labs

Some problems are not getting solved because good ideas are missing or technological possibilities are unclear. With hackathons, concept challenges, and labs you can tap into the creativity of developers and designers to tackle these problems.

Collaborating and sharing ideas

Living standards, best practices, ethical discussions; join our network of developers and designers to share knowledge, experience, and code. In collaboration with ICTU, Code for NL organizes Meetups every two months to get to know each other, share ideas, and start collaborations.

International network

Code for NL is connected to international networks, like Code for All and Code for Europe. Every year we attend conferences to meet fellow developers and designers from all over the world.

Fellowships and jobs

Code for NL organises Code Fellowships within government organizations. During a period of 6 to 12 months, Code Fellows are part of the organization to advise and work on digital technologies and solutions for the problems they encounter.
