Last week we had the privilege of traveling to Glasgow to take part in the annual Digital Tech Awards, presented by ScotlandIS, the trade body for technology companies here in Scotland. We were really pleased to be able to sponsor the “Best Education Provider or Training Programme" category this year which the judges whittled down to a shortlist that included CodeClan, Digital Xtra Fund, and The Data Lab.

All three companies are great examples of what it means to deliver high quality training programmes, and I’m sure it was a close call by the judges to choose the ultimate winner. Congratulations to CodeClan, one of Scotland’s first coding academies, who is hard at work addressing the technology skills shortage that all tech companies are feeling here in Scotland. They're also located very close to us within the CodeBase here in Edinburgh!

The community we have with other tech companies here in Edinburgh is a large part of our success, and we’re committed to investing in the communities we’re a part of all over the world. Congratulations to all the winners and nominated companies, and we look forward to what next year brings!
