CodeBase is happy to announce the beginning of our new partnership with PricewaterhouseCooper. It's great to see to a global player engaging meaningfully with startups. This is a great testimony of the growth and success of Edinburgh tech product companies and a sign of the maturity of the ecosystem.
We are frequently approached by people who are interested in learning to code, often with the goal of kickstarting a new career. It's not difficult to see why - it's one of the most in demand skills in Scotland (and globally) right now, and this isn't set to change any time soon. Aside from the obvious benefits of great career progression and competitive salaries, perks such as Administrate's 4 day week are becoming increasingly common as companies try to attract and retain the best talent.

Get out your party poppers and prepare for cake-ageddon, we're two years old!
