Restart Network: educating refugees to become web developers

Technology invades our daily life more and more. So why not educate all of us and make everyone a potential web developer? Restart Network agrees: it is an organization which offers computer science bootcamps to refugees, minorities and low-income backgrounds. The bootcamps takes only 3 or 6 months and best of all, is tuition free.

But, to make this possible, engineers are essential: they are needed to share their knowledge about computer ‘magic’ with the students. Take Jesse, a Computer Science masterstudent here at the TU Delft. He decided to help. He gave a workshop about how the students could use the cloud to make a web application available for a large group of people in a cheap and fast way.

It’s a win-win: the students are in need of this kind of education ánd the engineers can experience the amazing feeling of sharing knowledge and inspiring others.
