Made In Scotland were invited to this year’s Interrupt19 Digital Festival. We exhibited our knowledge and services to students and lecturers at West Lothian College, Livingston. Interrupt19 was set up to help address the digital skills shortage in Scotland. Helping as many people as possible can take advantage of the opportunities available now and in the future. The festival highlights the need to invest in the right facilities and skills for computing students in order to develop their skills in an environment relevant to the companies they aspire to work in. As a result of Interrupt19 Digital Festival, West Lothian College this year is launching a range of new digital courses and a cyber lab fully kitted out with state of the art technology.
On the stand is our Director Martin McCrum, Lead Developer, Pawel and UI/UX Designer Darren. They were showcasing our latest animation and web design projects. Our team on the day had the opportunity to share their own journey through the education system giving helpful advice to students about the technology industry. Also, advising on possible career paths after study. We also had the opportunity to speak with lecturers and tech companies to get their thoughts about online security and data protection. Following the exhibition was a series of workshops led by leading tech companies and ethical hackers enabling delegates to try out current and emerging technologies relevant to the world today.
Our highlight of the day has to be “The Singing Children of Africa”. They provided us with a very talented song and dance routine in the courtyard. Made In Scotland would like to thank West Lothian College for the opportunity to showcase our skills and projects to the IT professionals of the future. We will see you again next year for #Interrupt20!
Our team at Made In Scotland would love to work with you. Please get in touch for more information.
