Manama, Bahrain: The Tunisian startup specializing in Ed-Tech – GOMYCODE announces the opening of a Hackerspace in Manama – Bahrain with the aim of continuing its geographic expansion but also to strengthen its modern technological education platform.
Launched in 2017 by Yahya and Amine Bouhlel, GOMYCODE now has more than 80 talents with diverse profiles among its employees and a network of over 100 trainers across the Hackerspaces of Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt and now Bahrain.
Through an educational platform forming the next generation of technological and digital profiles and connecting them with the companies that build the world of tomorrow, GOMYCODE aims to become one of the largest developer communities in Africa and the Middle East.
This platform gives students and teachers the best digital tools for training, content creation, skills management, technical evaluation and matching with companies. Hence, making it possible to quickly create training programs, independently on a wide range of skills, thus offering great flexibility to its students.
Based on a blended learning model, between a physical presence within GOMYCODE’s Hackerspaces and online learning, GOMYCODE is aiming to have a strong impact in terms of talent training and ease its integration to a digitized job market and economy.
Over the past 3 years, GOOMYCODE’s vision was able to conduct the training of over 4,000 students who were able to acquire new skills, pioneering bright and promising professional horizons for them.
Rethinking education, the GOMYCODE’s model aims to be the school of the 21st century providing all the required training in web development, video game development, artificial intelligence, data science, design, digital marketing and business Intelligence.
A compact and highly-connected ecosystem brings together a diverse range of IT companies in Bahrain within the areas of IT services, IT distribution, IT consultancy, data management systems, software developers and customer support centres. Ranked the first in MENA for ICT readiness by the World Economic Forum, Bahrain offers the most competitive and affordable ICT services in the region.
Cloud traffic is growing faster in MENA than anywhere else in the world at 41% year a year. As the first Gulf country to adopt a nation-wide ‘cloud-first’ policy, Bahrain is ideally placed to take advantage of the ICT opportunities this trend is creating in areas such as business services outsourcing, cybersecurity, digital entertainment, gaming and e-commerce.
With strong market conditions created by high mobile penetration, the roll-out of commercial 5G and a business-friendly regulatory environment, Bahrain offers an ideal testbed for communication technology companies looking to take advantage of a region undergoing rapid digital transformation.
“We continue to deliver on our vision of providing high level digital education with a unique learning experience that leaves lasting impressions and have a positive impact on people’s lives. We will invest massively in our technology, our team and strengthen our operations” announces Yahya Boulel, CEO of GoMyCode.
“We started this business 3 years ago with an incredible team, and on a very exciting, difficult and unpredictable journey. We have built a business, trained over 4000 students, expanded over more than 4 sites, a team of more than 60 full-time employees, built an educational platform and we are already having a strong impact on people’s lives” he concluded.
