About us

Who we are

We are Bachelor & Master students of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and enthusiastic about programming. We all learned about programming during our studies and also discovered our passion for it through our work at the university. When the refugee crisis started in 2015 we thought we had to get involved as well. And that's what we did. But unlike many others, we continued to focus on programming.

And as people continue to flee to Germany, we continue to work on getting refugees excited about programming and making it easier for them to get settled in a foreign country and start their careers in Germany. As a club and as a university group, we have a lot of fun doing what we do, enjoy meeting new people, spending time together and achieving a goal together. 

We are EduRef.
