Turn into Coders is a project by Matteo Giaccone, software engineer born and raised in Torino, Italy. He studied and worked in Italy, Switzerland and United Kingdom. As far as he remembers, he has always been keen on understanding and learning technology, together with social issues and respect for people and environment. A short time after graduating at Politecnico, he co-founded “weLaika”, a software consultancy cooperative still going on today. He then moved to UK to enlarge his visions and improve his web development skills. In London he discovered Founders&Coders and started discussing with them how to export the model to his hometown, Torino.
Laura Spina is a friendly jurist, keen on writing, learning&teaching and good at connecting people.

Turin. Has always been one of the most innovative cities of Italy, both at the technical and social level. The city had to reinvent itself many times and now it's time for the tech innovation and for tourism. If you don't know Turin, have a look at this video of Monocle, or this audio again from the Monocle, or this tourist guide from the Guardian to learn a bit more.
Every Monday night we organise a free community event to learn programming, also starting from zero: Coding for everyone.
It's a way to get your first hands-on experience in coding, build your first website, your side project or simply meet like-minded people.
