Three Students Win Laptops, Other Gift Items As Rubies Technologies Concludes One-Week Free Tech Bootcamp at Ijoko

The best way to raise geniuses is to get them started early in life, and that is what Rubies Technologies was aimed at when she launched her one-week free tech boot camp for kids and teenagers in Ijoko Lemode, Ogun State on Monday, August 15th, 2022.

The free tech boot camp, tagged the Ijoko Project, was to commemorate the 5th anniversary of Rubies Technologies by giving back to society.

The boot camp, which had over 150 kids and teenagers in attendance, featured basic computer skills, Scratch, Web, and Python classes. At the concluding session of the training on Saturday, August 20th, 2022, gifts were awarded to students in various categories, and the highlight was when three outstanding students were each awarded a laptop to reward their assiduousness. Two of them were from the Python class, and the third was from the Web class. 

Bamgboye Favour, a Python student and one of the laptop winners, was awarded because of his passion and enthusiasm towards learning at the boot camp. According to him, “I have been coding on my phone for a very long time and always wanted a laptop but never believed this was how God was going to make it possible.”
