The minister said that they are looking to make people a part of the $90 billion programming industry. He said that this new program is especially targeted at those uninterested in studying and looking into video game development instead. According to him, the certification program should prove to be a “game-changer” for many.
The tweet does not reveal any details, but since the Minister talks about Smartphone games, we can expect the program to lean more towards phone apps and games. There is no official announcement regarding the program on the Ministry’s website, but we can expect to see more details once there is an official publication.
We will update this space as soon as there is more information. Stay tuned.
