The programme is meant to help students, fresh graduates and the general public to develop useful Apps that will help improve community wellbeing. By logging in to portal one can register to be part of the programme either by seeking trainings, helping House of Technology to provide training, or providing advice on future projects. Trainings are free. After completing the programme, the candidates will receive certificates and they will be expected to also pass on what they have learned to others to build a hi-tech community.
