SFL Hosting MIC Summer School Participants - SFL

Yesterday was a fun day @ as we hosted the future talents of IT together with their parents, to highlight the most important aspects of working in a technology team.

Our “young visitors” were the participants of the summer school organized by MIC Armenia for students aged 10-14. During the program, the participants were taught to code in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and got some practical data that would help them determine whether they can be the next “it” girl or boy for the industry.

As coding skills were acquired, the students got a chance to visit some of the leading Armenian IT companies to see how IT transformed the world on the example of real projects. We @SFL were more than happy to host the young talent of Armenia and share our passion for our work and success with them!

Company Culture and Team Roles

Besides showing the students around SFL’s main projects, we wanted to sow the seeds of perception of company roles and what a healthy company culture is. We had a chance to speak about working in a team, team roles and the principles of keeping company culture sky high.
