We are witnessing the tremendous development in IT sector worldwide. There are more and more open positions for IT professionals. On the other hand, e-commerce ecosystem is constantly growing, thus showing the urge for qualified and educated individuals.
However, we are facing a high youth unemployment rate (in Serbia, it is 31,2%), while the global unemployment rate in IT sector is below 5%.
Therefore, this year (as part of Meet Magento Serbia conference) we decided to raise awareness towards the importance of early child education by introducing “Meet Magento Serbia Kids” concept.
This concept includes a 45-minute workshop for a group of primary school children, where our youngest participants will have the opportunity to get in touch with the essentials of quality coding. In that way, we aim to create common interest in programming among the participants. Major effect of this workshop will be the information they will spread on to their peers.
Also, we would like to show them how e-commerce sites are working, since there is a constant growth when it comes to online purchases in Serbia.
This workshop will be run by experienced e-commerce specialists.
