The fourth edition of Codefest is a developed form of what we know to be a programming marathon for the young IT enthusiasts, who will have the opportunity the develop their own ideas in 32 hours. This year this event unites and connects all sides of the IT crowd, not just students, high school students and IT professionals, but also the IT business sector, educational sector, startups and investment fonds. The event is announced to happen from 15.04 to 17.04 this year at the Ineks Gorica hotel in Ohrid.
