Re:Coded Round-Up July 2019 Edition

Erbil Summer Tech-Fest


It’s been a busy month for the team over at Re:Coded House; our co-working space in Erbil, Iraq.  This month we launched Erbil’s first-ever Summer Tech Fest, hosting over 25 events in the past two months, with more to come in August. From Cryptocurrency Workshops to Intro to Digital Marketing courses to even Yoga Sessions, the #ErbilTechFest brought together the community to celebrate tech, creativity, and innovation.

If you’re interested in partnering with us or hosting events to help grow Erbil’s tech ecosystem, feel free to reach out.
