CodeCave project to empower local coders and software developers

The local tech ecosystem is set to benefit largely from a new project called CodeCave, which will empower coders and software developers to improve their skills.

CodeCave was launched between DoBox Trust and the Finnish Embassy’s Fund for Local Cooperation, and will be powered by Paratus’ high-speed fiber internet access.

In an effort to create awareness, the CodeCave will run a 30-day user promotion started on 22 September where freelancers who need a place to code can book for only N$50/day and anyone looking for a venue to give coding classes can book a room for only $50/hour. The promotion ends on 22 October and only applies to new members.

“We are extremely proud of how far we have come with the DoBox and how we are impacting the tech and entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing platforms such as CodeCave to further grow the economy,” Dololo co-founder, Chantal Claassen said.

Andrew Hall, Paratus Namibia managing director said the sponsorship fits squarely in line with its vision of empowering future generations by bridging the gap of access to technology and information.

“We are very excited to be on board as the main connectivity sponsor for CodeCave. Through innovative services such as this, entrepreneurs are given a platform to excel and provide the much-needed boost to the tech ecosystem and to the Namibian economy as a whole. ICT will always remain a key enabler for economic growth, which is why we remain committed to unlimiting the future for entrepreneurs,” Hall said.
