Programme of the Summer School "Coding for Language Communities"

The summer school will focus on the practical implementation of software that supports specific language communities. Therefore, a large part of the summer school will be reserved for working in teams together with the mentors and experienced software developers. On the first day we will create the teams and each team will discuss a project to implement during the week together with its mentor.

Each day will consist of two learning sessions in the morning and practical team work in the afternoon. Here is a detailed plan with all talks and workshops during the week:
