Join us for the launch of our new WeChat mini-programs at The Walnut Co-Working Space (Shimao)
Only 9 weeks ago, aspiring developers and entrepreneurs began their journey with Le Wagon Chengdu.
Their mission was to learn the fundamentals of product-focused programming so they could empower their careers, build their startups, and turn ideas into real technology.
During these intensive weeks, they’ve accomplished their mission and on Saturday, December 16th they are launching their first web applications – WeChat mini-programs they developed from scratch.
If you’ve ever wondered about picking up life-changing skills, or wanted to learn the ‘secrets’ of technology, come see what previously non-technical students can accomplish after just 9-weeks of training. These teams have developed two products from novel ideas.
The two products being are: “Save money while getting social” & “Shake Well to Eat” (摇吃嘛).
On Saturday, December 16, we invite all our friends to meet these newly minted coders and watch a showcase of the apps they developed in teams. You’ll also get to hear from some experienced entrepreneur guest speakers as they share their wisdom and insights into technology in Chengdu.
