The Internship

The Workspace

With colourful bean bags and glass windows with inspirational quotes and creative ideas! The Techy Hub is definitely an unconventional yet a positive and comfortable place to work in. Plus, the access to the Xbox adds to the perks of working here!

You’ll often find the guys playing Counter-strike once they’ve gotten their work done.

With a long break in between college and university, we, the interns, needed to make good use of our time. We have learned the fundamentals of programming, from variables and loops to Swift language and how to work Xcode, Android Studio and Unity. All this in our third week here! 

Aside from that, we have expanded our knowledge on social media marketing techniques; covering areas such as brand presence, high quality posts and social media analytics.

Lending a helping hand

Although we managed to work independently, the guidance from The Techy Hub experts were of help to us in developing our programming skills. The Techies gave us instructions and we followed. We began to work together, discovering new methods and ideas whilst learning from mistakes. Moreover, we learnt to ask intelligent questions and source for solutions through research. We also provided an opportunity to teach the children of Trinity Children’s Centre simple coding programs. In addition, The Techy Hub regularly services the computers at the centre.

Interning here provides a real world experience, which will be valuable in the future. The skills and knowledge which will be picked up at The Techy Hub gives us an edge in the competitive market for programming and networking, both a heavy influence on many modern businesses in today’s world.

We’ll also be posting regular updates on The Techy Hub Facebook page so be sure to look out for it!
