Master21 provided me with a very holistic introduction to programming and the toolkit necessary to independently translate imagination into code. Learning the basics of how to code opened up many new avenues to think about, approach and solve everyday problems.

In times of digitization and transformation, digital skills are key for our work and daily life. Master21 teaches the digital language - coding - in a practical way with a touch of theory. Knowing basic skills of coding is freedom and makes independent. The codeweek gave me insights how to approach technical challenges and broadened my interest in tech.

Aileen Zumstein

Founder & Managing Partner Aileen Zumstein Communication GmbH


We organized an inhouse workshop because we wanted our non-tech people to get a better understanding. Master21 explained a complicated topic simply, with an ideal mix between theory and practice. The teachers shared their wide knowledge with patience, passion and humour. What a great insight into the world of code.
