For the first time in Stara Zagora, a big technology festival will be held – Zara Tech Spring, which we have the pleasure to be partners of. Its main goal is to promote and popularize technologies and to focus on the development of the IT sector as a key factor for the local community and economy.
Within almost two months, various lectures, discussions and workshops in the field of digitalization and entrepreneurship will take place. They are free and open to everyone with an interest in these spheres. They are aimed at students, young people and adults who are about to choose a career, as well as specialists from other sectors who want to retrain, teachers in information technologies, business people and others.
We are happy that such an initiative will take place in Stara Zagora and that we will host two of the events – the first edition of the workshop that targets women with little to no experience in the field of programming and technology Rails Girls Stara Zagora and the two-day entrepreneurial training for people aged between 19 and 35 years ABLE Weekend Activator.
Rails Girls Stara Zagora will take place on May 19th and 20th. The goal of the workshop is to encourage women to take their first steps in technology, by providing them with basic knowledge of programming and showing them that it is an exciting, interesting and very useful skill. During the event, the participants will learn more about the work of programmers and will receive valuable guidance on how to continue to develop in the sector.
From June 2nd to 4th at The Lodge Coworking Space will also host the ABLE Weekend Activator. Within 48 hours future entrepreneurs with ideas for social projects or their own business will work on different cases and ideas and with the help of experienced mentors they will have the opportunity to improve them to a real working version.
