The IE Coding Club Madrid develops a variety of initiatives including workshops, industry talks, company visits, seminars, hackathons and conferences among other events. Their main goal is to properly expose and prepare our community with the skill set necessary to face our digital environment.
“The 4th Industrial Revolution is flourishing before our eyes. Coronavirus has only catalysed this process. Accordingly, it is of paramount importance that students are fully equipped with the latest tech tools to thrive as entrepreneurs and financiers, among countless other endeavours.” – Daniel Aguilera, Vice-President Coding Club Madrid.
This year, the club co-organized TechIE one of IE’s biggest technological conferences.

Why does IE need a club like this one?
Being a tech centered club not only do we represent a pillar in today’s tech driven society, but also we have the firm belief that not only companies and processes are going through a digital transformation, but also the necessary skill set for impactful professionals who are in a formative process in our community.
How do you think the club embodies the IE Values (Entrepreneurship, Tech & Innovation, Humanities, Diversity)?
We truly do pride ourselves on our constant effort to not only be a well rounded club, but also one of principles and values. Entrepreneurship, innovation, humanities and diversity are a given among us, but what truly is of admiration is the hard work our team puts in to launch forward valuable initiatives for our community.

As well as other events focused on web development skills in a 3 session course imparted by a professional representative of Iron Hack.
“Headed for my third year in the club I can not imagine summing up all my learning experiences in a single answer, but I can talk about the closest ones to my process. I learned hard work and dedication pay off, consistency with a clear and attainable goal is the equation of success. Also the complexity, yet the importance of good leadership. But above all, I have learned I still have yet much to learn.”
