ITUp has already started its first Turn Up Academy at Terceira Tech Island, and soon there will be new outstanding OutSystems Developers in the market. During 2019, the goal is to train 60 people in the region.

Through a partnership with Azores Regional Government, we are transforming computer lovers from Azores into OutSystems Developers at Terceira Tech Island. How are we doing it? With the Turn Up Program! A complete training process that starts with web foundations and is followed by OutSystems training. After 12 weeks and certification completion, ITUp and Azores Regional Government help trainees to find a dream job among the several leading companies already located or moving to the Terceira Tech Island.

Typical Turn Up trainees have logical reasoning skills and not necessarily a tech background. In fact, the program is specifically designed for those who know how to use the left side of their brains, such as Engineers or Mathematicians. «There’s a lack of OutSystems Developers in the market and a great number of talented people that did not find their vocation yet, that are unemployed or unhappy with what they do. We found it in the Azores and we are very happy with the current performance of the trainees.», refers Jorge Martins, ITUp CTO and the trainer of the current academy.

OutSystems is a world leading low-code platform that enables the fast development of mobile and web apps. “Given the growing number of companies working with this technology, it made perfect sense to make this training available,” explains Sérgio Ávila, vice-president of the Azorean Government, for whom “introducing training in OutSystems represents a greater diversity of options for trainees and a consequent increase of opportunities to attract companies that want to install themselves at Terceira Tech Island”.
