Successful delivery of Python Django Bootcamp
The chapter delivered a very successful Python Django Bootcamp event over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of September held at Supernatural in the World Trade Center Gibraltar.
The bootcamp was designed to teach women (and men) with little to no technical experience how to build an online blogging application from the ground up. The event hosted 22 women and 2 men, all who successfully managed to build and deploy their very own blog platform to the internet by the end of the weekend.
Meanwhile, GiG is further investing into projects to support the local communities harboring the Group companies’ office locations. After its involvement in the Malta Clean Up Day in September the next big thing is already in planning. Watch this space!
