What we're about

Events and workshops that will help you unlock new skills for a better career.

About this Meetup:

This group was created and managed by Xccelerate (https://xccelerate.co) in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong has a way to go before it is considered a "tech hub" competitive with other leading cities in the world.

The intention of this group is to move the needle in Hong Kong. We want to raise awareness in tech, from a high level "what you need to know" to practical skills you can use in the workplace and thus enhance your career.

Our events, workshops and meetups always have the goal of enhancing engagement and facilitating transformative tech skills development here in Hong Kong. We hope you leave each event with more knowledge than when you joined and meet like-minded individuals that expand your value network.

Many attendees of our events do ask how they can pursue further knowledge if they want to continue to develop skills. The majority of meetups shared here will provide information on this, which may come in the form of future events, workshops and courses provided by Xccelerate and its network of industry professional instructors.
