The five-day event, which started on August 10, 2015, was powered by Flow’s superior fibre-based broadband technology and held at the Public Service Training Institute in Union.
In addition to the fair, there were lectures by various experts on technology trends and issues. Another component, a Hack-a-thon was held on August 12th and 13th respectively.
Some 80-plus participants enrolled in the free sessions and were introduced to solution-oriented application development, specifically in the areas of mobile application and computer animation.
