Location, location, location

There's just so many things we still have to tell you...

There's so many speakers, activities, spices, changes to the format of the 24 hour competition, so many, many things...

Let's start with the location.

This year Codebits is taking us all to Pavilhão Atlântico, Tejo Hall.

This venue, located at the Parque das Nações, is definitely one of the best in town.

The room is large and the location is wonderful.

There are lots of trains, subways, buses and taxis nearby, at Gare do Oriente.

Stepping outside the venue you'll immediately see the Vasco da Gama Bridge, the longest bridge in Europe

A 5 minute walk to the right will take you to the Oceanarium (the largest tank alone has 5,000 cubic meters of water)

A 5 minute walk to the left will take you to a large concentration of restaurants and bars.


A 5 minute walk to your back will take you to the Vasco da Gama shopping center, where you'll be able to find all sorts of stores.


Provided that you remember to go around the building, of course.


If you don't, you'll be back inside.


We added a page to the website with a map and some pictures of the venue and its surroundings.

There's also a link for directions on how to get there.

If you've been following us on Twitter you probably already know where the event is taking place: Cordoaria Nacional.



This emblematic building where once sisal ropes were assembled has a large space over 200 meters long, which we'll fill with all sorts of cool stuff (but more on that later).



The building is right beside the 25 de Abril bridge.


Since the ropes were meant for ships, the supplying process demanded that it be located right next to the Tagus river, which will grant us a great view whenever we go outside (we're only assuming you'll eventually go outside, sometime during those three days, but we'll certainly make sure you have everything you need inside).
