Samsung and Wits University’s App Factory Stipend Internship program for South Africans 2021

Samsung South Africa in partnership with Wits University’s Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct invites applications from South African students to its second group of ‘youths entering the App Factory’ Internship Programme 2021.

The App Factory internship is an essential learning ground for teaching the language of technology, which is coding. Interns get to work with experienced senior developers to grow their competence and hone their skills-an education that can translate into a successful career in a rapidly expanding industry.

Many graduates do not have the necessary experience to land their first job as a software developer. Through the Samsung collaboration, Tshimologong aims to develop and grow few more, talented graduates by bridging the knowledge and experience gap under the mentorship of a senior developer to ultimately make them more employable.” Chief Executive of the Tshimologong Precinct, Lesley Donna Williams, says, “The programme offers invaluable experience for graduates at a crucial point in the very beginning of their careers’’.  The program will cover

  • C#,
  • ASP.NET Webforms,
  • NET MVC,
  • Angular,
  • JavaScript and other relevant topics.

“This is an immense platform for empowering deserving, previously disadvantaged youth. Aligned with the global mission of ‘Enabling People’, from here they can launch careers that place them at the forefront of the 4th Industrial Revolution,“ says Hlubi Shivanda, Director for Business Operations, Innovation and Corporate Affairs.”
