Training future digital leaders, such is the ambition of the Luxembourg Tech School, which launched as a pilot project one year ago. Since then, 32 students of the first intake have learned to develop games, which they later pitched in front of professional game developers at the Technoport and even commercialized at the end of the school year! They also learned about big data and presented the outcome of their analysis to 600 VIP guests at the ICT Spring. Finally, they ended their first year developing apps for the bank of the future during a weekend-long hackathon at the LHoFT (Luxembourg House of Financial Technology). It sure has been an exciting year for the first lucky intake, but just see for yourself!
