is the Festival of the culture of the source code, its history, its future
The Festival is open to everyone: to the world of education and research (students, teachers, scholars), to that of programming (developers and entrepreneurs) and art (hackers, musicians, DJs, visual artists).
But above all it is aimed at the general public, to enthusiasts and curious, to all those who have heard of source code but do not know what it is.
At the center of the event is programming, a cultural phenomenon, as well as technological, of global importance but which has so far remained hidden
In a perspective that sees source codes comparable to texts written by authors in certain historical languages and in certain contexts, the exhibition aims to provide information that is correct and reliable, but also stimulating and not only for professionals.
An exploration of the source code as a linguistic, literary, historical, artistic, humanistic and not just technical fact. This version of the exhibition, built online to be usable by everyone, was designed and set up by Codexpo.org in collaboration with the students of the IIS Avogadro di Torino and aims to involve students both as researchers / fitters and in that of visitors.
On the occasion of CodeFest 2021, the first online museum of source code will be opened. This is an ambitious project, carried out in collaboration between Codexpo.org and the Computer Science Department of the University of Turin (Rossana Damiano and Felice Cardone), which using the Omeka software collects catalogs and exhibits fragments of significant source code, but also testimonies historical. Among the important collections, the one dedicated to the Italian source code.
SUSTAINABLE KEYBOARDS CLAVIERS DURABLES
Date: throughout the event
Sergio Margarita, has created an artistic format that reuses computer keyboards, the same ones that still today after 40 years are the main work tool for coding professionals.
From keyboards and their keys, Sergio Margarita gives birth to works of art, exhibited in different countries, which hybridize computer input devices with various aspects of life and with sustainability.

Within the collections of the Piedmontese Museum of Informatics there is a rich collection of software packages ranging from the times of the mainframe to the present day.
For Codefest MuPIn creates an online exhibition of software packages and their packaging to demonstrate how software packaging has changed over the years.
From the early days when the packaging of computer programs was austere and staid, up to the later times when communication was based on a greater use of graphics and colors up to the contemporary times in which software distribution was dematerialized and virtualized.
The exhibition also allows us to retrace the history of software by summarizing the packages that have made history and that with their communication have become milestones and iconic objects in offices and homes with their boxes.
