Helping to close the digital skills gap

By Chris Pont, IJYI
It’s an incredibly exciting time to be involved in technology. The phones in our pockets are around 100,000 times more powerful than the Apollo 11 computer that landed two astronauts on the moon (still seen as one of the pinnacles of human achievement over half a century later).
