As Malaysia’s digitalisation grows, upskilling and reskilling becomes more crucial. Thankfully, Malaysia is not short of institutions and resources to do so, thanks to the likes of Forward School, NEXT Academy and Akademi GA.
NEXT Academy sets aside a RM1 million scholarship fund for underprivileged students who are interested in computer programming.
NEXT Academy has raised US$300K in a pre-seed round that would accelerate its goal of teaching a million people in South-East Asia coding and growth hacking skills over the next five years.
A 10-week full-time web developer training programme called DevRubyCamp has launched in Singapore, targeting to train up to 60 software developers over three courses a year.
