function deCODE (you, startups) {}

Hey coders,

Haha.. am I right?

I’m sorry, I’m in marketing, I couldn’t find one programming joke I understood, BUT here’s something I do understand. As students, it can be hard to connect with companies, get involved with real world problems and get recruited.

So, our team came up with a solution:

If you’re wondering

Before writing this I asked our conference director to give me a little backstory on deCODE. His response:

That was a joke.

But seriously, the inspiration? He said it was personal.

 
I always wanted to connect with cool companies, to see what it was like working with them and see what problems they’re facing. I’ve always wanted to easily connect smart, ambitious people with companies who are doing things differently and challenging industries.

And contribute my experiences and thoughts to that company’s mission, in a pretty unique way.
 

His vision came true, the first deCODE happened back in 2015 *spoiler alert* it was a huge success.

So don’t miss out.
