ARDUINO DAY AND OUR 2018 SO FAR

ItS almost mid-year and 2018 has been the most eventful year so far.

 

On Saturday, 12th May 2018, we hosted the first ever "Arduino day celebrations" in Zambia.

 

It was an event that saw tech enthusiast across the country come together and built cool Arduino projects which our Electronics and Software developer Wilfred Mulenga, who was spearheading the activities described as a success.

 

“It was the first of its kind in Zambia and this shows that the tech industry is headed in the right direction. We built an electronic weather station, a delivery robot and had a lot of fun", Mulenga said.

 

“The average age of  the participants  was 21  which indicates that the future of technology is very bright because at Hackers Guild we believe the best way to build a foundation of the next generation of developers is by introducing them to technology at an early age”, he added.

 

Secondly, things just got tense as we start the 14 day countdown to the close of the first 2018 coding bootcamp. Our students are working on their final projects which they will present on graduation day.

The event will be attended by friends, family and invited guests who are potential employers. Applications for the second boot camp will be opening soon. Monitor our website and social media for more.

 

Finally, we are excited to let you know that we will be having the second Lusaka hackathon next month.

 

The Schools that are expected to take part are Nyumba yanga, Chilenje South High school, Olympia Secondary, Devos and Bauleni Secondary .We will keep you posted on the dates as we continue to grow the army of coders.
