About this event

There's no better time to break into software engineering than now. Over the past few years, some of the biggest technology companies have made Singapore a key node in its operations. Social media giant Facebook is opening its first S$1.38 billion Asian data centre in our little red dot while Google’s third data centre for their next billion users is on the cards. Southeast Asia’s own unicorns have also made Singapore their staging ground to grow their operations. Grab, the region’s largest ride-hailing platform, decided to relocate its headquarters to Singapore in 2014. E-commerce giant Lazada also chose Singapore as its group’s headquarters.

And with the booming tech landscape comes the surge in demand for software engineering talents to power these tech machines. Some 50,000 ICT jobs are expected to be created in Singapore in the next few years, adding to the pool of some 180,000 ICT professionals currently hired here; and many of these jobs will be created by some of the biggest tech giants in the world.
