Pi School Workshops

We designed these workshops to give you a snapshot of some topics Pi School programmes will focus on: we will have a series of talks and short classes specially designed for full blood and hardcore developers. Allow us to warn all others who are welcomed to sneak in and yet won’t understand a word!

Along side with these talks we will have a long list of other programmes, workshops and master classes designed to raise the attention of designers, advertisers, entrepreneurs, strategist and anyone else hungry for knowledge.

All workshops will happen in three different areas within our new school rooms.
