We are kicking off 2016 with a StartupQ8 event this Tuesday the 19th of Jan at 7PM in Global Tower. I know this might be a short notice, but we promise this event will be worth it. Two interesting talks in the event:
1- 7pm – 7:45pm Startup Weapons:
Abdullah Alshalabi (the co-founder of StartupQ8 and Fishfishme.com is back!) will be talking about Startup tools. The tools that will help you with your support, design, marketing and sales activities. He probably used more than +100 tools during his 4+ years journey and will cover the best ones with some live examples.
2- 8pm – 8:45pm Ajar Story:
Ajar is a mobile App to pay your apartment rent (and for landlords to collect rent). The founder Shaheen AlKhudhari will tell their story with how they secured the big partnership with Warba Bank.
The event will start on 7pm sharp, don’t be late. Event for free, in English and open to everyone. Questions? contact Startupq8@gmail.com.

We all know how hard it is to find a talented coder to hire or be your co-founder. So sometimes, the best thing to do is to go learn the technical stuff yourself. In the least, mastering the fundamentals of programming helps you communicate with your technical team, and be more valuable to the product building process.
There’s no doubt that the time and effort you invest in your coding education will pay dividends for your startup in one way or another.
If you’re looking for a place to learn how to code, Coded, Kuwait’s first and only coding bootcamp, has announced earlier this week that they are accepting applications for the Spring coding bootcamp.
The bootcamp is aimed at beginners who want to become professional programmers. Coded students graduate as junior level professional coders.
The Spring bootcamp, which starts in March, is an intensive part-time bootcamp with 4 hours of class every weekday (5m to 9m), and lasts 14 weeks. The part-time format makes it easy for those who have a full-time commitment in the day time to join the bootcamp in the evening.
The application deadline is Feb 7th, 2016.
