WORKSHOP: ISLANDS OF SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS?

September 10 → 10:30 am12:00 pm

King Street Halls, Kirkwall

There’s a worldwide shortage of software developers – with benefits in pay and conditions for those with the skills, and the opportunity to work from home or anywhere else with an internet connection. What’s holding people back? How early should you start to learn the skills? Or indeed how late can you do so? Maria Bell of Mesomorphic in Shetland joins staff from Orkney-based Kyloe Partners to see if they – and you – can come up with answers. Tea, coffee and Orkney biscuits will be provided to assist the process.

Maria Bell is the founder of Mesomorphic, a software development company based in Lerwick, Shetland. The company have a commitment to digital education, with their model, called Silicon Croft, engaging students and educators from primary school all the way through to higher and further education.

Gordon Robinson is Kyloe’s Head of Product Management and Innovation, providing digital transformational consultancy and designing, building and delivering data and software solutions worldwide. He previously worked in the UK and US healthcare sectors, as well as in fintech and recruitment.

Numbers limited to 25: booking essential. Tickets £10.

This event has been made possible by the kind support of Kyloe Partners and Mesomorphic.
