About the event

Digital skills have always been difficult to learn. This for one simple reason: The field moves so fast, that whatever we teach today is outdated tomorrow. So how can we keep pace? What should institutions be doing to ensure that the ecosystem has enough skilled professionals. What is needed for organizations and companies to attract and maintain talents? And what should you be doing as a tech professional to make sure you don’t miss out the next big thing? A lot of questions, to be addressed at our  „It’s about tech meetup, taking place on June 20 in Basel’s Westhive Co-Working Space (thanks for co-hosting!), starting form 17.30.

We will hear from experts and discuss their insights, giving you (or your kids) some clues about how to develop your talent in the tech world of the 21st century.
