Google announced the launch of the "Digital Workshop for Programmers", aimed at offering free courses to students who want to learn to program and young people who want to become technology entrepreneurs.

The activity of Google hubs for programmers has two components, a company release states. First of all, in these spaces will be organized courses for students. Courses are free and run for 10 weeks. Interested students can opt for Java courses, Android development for beginners or advanced learners. More details here: https://goo.gl/AhCGGN. The three Google hubs for programmers will also act as start-up incubators, providing free co-working space for young people working on developing their own applications and wanting to launch a start-up. Young entrepreneurs benefit from support and individual mentoring sessions in Google hubs to identify start-up growth opportunities, Google expert training sessions, and access to Google Cloud for Startups. The program lasts for 6 months and ends with a Demo Day session where young people present their ideas to a community of investors and technology experts.

The Digital Developer Workshop is part of "Grow with Google" initiative, a global project that aims to create opportunities for everyone by offering free courses, resources and advice. Through the Digital Workshop, launched in 2016 in Romania, Google aims to help people find a job, advance their career, or develop their business by acquiring digital skills.
