Code for Cape Town Ambassadors presented at the IAB Digital Summit in Johannesburg on the importance of diversity in the tech industry. The summit brought together marketers, advertising executives, publishers and technologists together to share insights about the reinvention of media, platforms, creative & business models while exploring the latest thinking and innovation in digital.

Code for Cape Town was represented on stage by Ambassadors, Anita and Siyanda who joined Code4CT in 2014. Anita Sese is a second year Systems Engineering student at Khulisa Academy, a High Performance Computing training academy launched by Dell and Siyanda Jamce is a first year Business Information Technology student at University of Johannesburg. After matriculating, she completed a web development internship to gain practical web development knowledge before commencing her university studies.

Thank you to the IAB for giving us a platform to share our important work.

Both Anita and Siyanda are now passing on their love of coding to other high school learners in Tsakane. You can join them by applying as a Code Coach.
