Programming clubs in the autumn of 2019

Registration for the programming clubs opens on May 27th 2019 at 7am. For registration, please use the Lyyti form.

In autumn 2019 most of our programming clubs run for the entire term (12 meetings from early September to December, with a two week autumn break in the middle of term). An exception is the Game programming for beginners club, which is organised in two separate 6-week sessions, in order to make it easier to try out out programming as a hobby. If necessary, it is also possible to change clubs during the term, provided there are spaces available. A 6-week club costs 72€, and the entire term of 12 meetings is 144€ (including VAT at 24%)

The clubs meet in the Exactum building on the Kumpula campus of the University of Helsinki (Pietari Kalmin katu 5). Please note that the language of instruction in the clubs is Finnish, and it will be difficult to participate if the participant does not speak and understand Finnish.
