Web Development Star Represents GB in WorldSkills FinalsPublished on 02 November 2017
Alfie Hopkins, a young Welsh Web Development Star from Llanelli, South Wales has represented Great Britain in the WorldSkills Finals in Abu Dhabi this October.
WorldSkills is an annual event where competitors from countries across the world compete in a variety of ‘skills’ to be crowned champion. WorldSkills ethos is “improving the world with the power of skills”.
Alfie first started engaging with Technocamps when he was just 14 when he attended a Technocamps Bootcamp on iOS development. At the time Alfie said that “I wasn’t thinking about making iOS games but after Technocamps it really inspired me to do more”.
Technocamps have supported Alfie’s WorldSkills ambitions by providing bespoke training specifically targeted at the Server-Side element of the competition.
Unfortunately, Alfie didn’t quite make the medal tables but made Team GB proud with his performance!

Funding for a Swansea University led programme that will encourage youngsters to learn about Computer Science and its related STEM subjects has been announced by the Welsh Government Minister for Welsh Language and Lifelong Learning, Eluned Morgan.
Thanks to funding, secured by Prof Andrew Ware, Technocamps, supported by First Campus, hosted a two night residential event for Year 12 pupils from across South East Wales.
