The Technical University Graz promotes every year an award for research based on culture and gender equality. Every year many interesting projects are submitted and we are happy that our very own Code’N’Stitch is a selected winner by the jury in this years choice.
Code’N’Stitch was planed as an extension for Pocked Code and is now a very own App – available for free.
The project team aimed for an easy and “hands on” approach to get more teenagers and especially girls into coding. Based on Catrobats visual programming language and the use of Pocket Code as a basis, the team under lead by Sarina Gursch, Vesna Krnjic and Wolfgang Slany created an intuitive and generally understandable use case for particularly female teenagers smartphones and the desire to individualize their outfit.
To give you an overview on how Code’n’Stitch works it’s best to check out one of our tutorial videos on youtube. You can find one below as a start.
