Techsense Team I 3:47 pm, 14th March

After the Summer Camp launch in August 2022, Digital Learning Hub (DLH) organizes the first edition of the Spring Camp, from April 4th to 6th, 2023. These three days of workshops offer uninitiated persons an introduction to various tech subjects: cybersecurity, coding and design thinking.

According to a Scots study¹, Luxembourg would be the 2nd city in the European Union to make a career in the technologies, information and communication field and also appears in the top 20 of the first world cities. Digital transformation concerns all sectors of the economy and companies that are entirely aware implement adapted technologies and infrastructures for years. This development is especially perceptible in Luxembourg, where 687 employments in tech are planned between 2023 and 2024.²

New horizons open up for several occupations in which it is important to educate ourselves: Helpdesk Support Technician, API developer, Cloud application developer, System Analyst, or even Software Engineer. According to the same survey, the Luxembourgish companies have high requirements to the candidates qualification level. To practice these professions, there’s no other option but specialize in a specific field in order to achieve a required profile by the job market. It is therefore essential to develop needed skills and know-how thanks to a fitting training.

An introduction to new tech jobs

The DLH Spring Camp aims to kindle interest for the in full growth area of technologies, information and communication. Through workshops that will take place from April 4th to 6th, 2023, experts of the Luxembourgish ecosystem will offer attendees a first glimpse to three important IT themes: cybersecurity, coding and design thinking. The purpose is to help attendees develop some basics and knowledge through practical and theoretical discoveries sessions, further peer exchange and above all, spend a moment in relaxed surroundings.
