6 years ago, in a garden shed, GoSquared was founded by three 14 year olds. Since then James, Geoff and JT have gone from strength to strength, assembling a great team and building an awesome real-time web analytics service.
Young Rewired State is a week long hackathon for under 18s in the UK. The aim is to get young people to learn how to code, develop their skills, teach other, learn from experienced mentors and create brilliant things with open data.
The initiative is run by Emma Mulqueeny, a special tech advisor to the Mayor of London, and a steering group who oversee the entire project. Young Rewired State is open to anyone in the UK, under the age of 18, whether they can code or just have an interest in technology.
Having started from such a young age too, GoSquared is incredibly excited to announce support and sponsorship for Young Rewired State 2012. Not only will we be providing financial support to the project, many of our team will be on hand throughout the week as mentors.
Young Rewired State still has a long way to go with fundraising and they’re seeking donations from individuals, as well as startups and big corporations. If you can spare as little as £10 to support a fantastic cause please donate to ensure that this event can go ahead – http://www.peoplefund.it/young-rewired-state/
GoSquared is proud to help support the next generation of coders.
