Pressmeddelande – Tjejer samlas på Engeltofta för att lära sig bygga en responsiv hemsida – på en helg

Över 200 tjejer sökte till helgkursen, 30 fick plats. 90% av dessa bor i region Gävleborg. Dessa tjejer har aldrig testat på programmering, alternativt testat – men på en grundläggande nivå. Detta visar att intresset för webbutveckling är på kraftig framåtmarsch.

Success Stories

Here are some examples of successful Projects.

Hyper Ledger Blockchain Test Bed – Gävle Innovation Arena

Fujitsu is a global company that has 140 000 employees worldwide. Fujitsu spends 1,5 billion USD’s on R&D yearly. To create a robust eco-system it is essential that we at Future Position X manage to attract all different companies and organizations. We believe that all companies in the evolution chain (Incubation to Enterprise) are important. Innovation is key, therefore we are glad to welcome an innovative company like Fujitsu in to Gävle Innovation Arena. ”We are proud to be one of eight nodes in Fujitsus Hotspot Network”/ Anna Fjällström Verksamhetschef/CEO FPX ”We hope our node in the Gävle Innovation Arena will attract new applications and solutions”/ Mikael Wikman, Director at Fujitsu

Sensing City

The Sensing City project was a multi-year, multi-partner International Study focused on Smart Technology in the city to provide health benefits to it’s most vulnerable citizens in a sustainable way. The project took a series of disparate datasets on a specific testgroup and the environment, collected data using an ecosystem of technology, sensors and joined this previously un-linked data together to provide new Geospatial Health Intelligence. The project was able to link environmental data from technology – hosted in the fabric of the city – to personal mobility and health data from smartphones in almost real-time.

KRAFT 5.1

According to the industry organization IT and Telekomföretagen, 70 000 new programmers are needed in Sweden by the year 2022. To get there we all need to work together, we need initiatives, activities and educations that lead to work opportunities.
Through a venture with Vinnova, FPX has been able to run Training Programs for women in Programming. One of the performers in the project is Tjejer Kodar, who, through their unique approach to Programming and Learning, have been able to engage a large group of women. The interest and demand have been far greater than we initially anticipated within the framework of the project. This is a clear indication that the work is important and must continue with the regional actors.
