As of today, Flock of Birds is in the Last stages of preparations to start Summer School Programme. We are so glad and happy that Pink Elephant through Chorus and Udemy through Eiserman are on board. Pink Elephant worked on the use case for the Summer School and they are going to send a representative to Uganda to come and participate in the Training Programme and will also be available during the Closing ceremony. On the other hand Warren is going to offer the students free online course for Mendix.
I like this community for by posting the above we got support and motivation. I will be looking forward for any other support that can be accorded in this aspect. Its not late to give in a hand.
