Samsung India have teamed up with union micro, small and medium enterprises ministry on Wednesday to open MSME-Samsung Digital Academy, which will offer courses to train young developers in the fine art of Tizen application development. We have already seen Tizen on the Samsung Z1 Smartphone, Samsung 2015 range of TVs and there is more to come.
The Samsung Digital Academy will initially be rolled out across the 10 MSME-Samsung Technical Schools since August 2014, and then will ramp up to include an additional 68 MSME Technical Centres across India.
"The ministry of MSME continuously looks to provide opportunities to the country's youth to access current developments across various fields. Industry collaborations allow the ministry to strengthen its skill development courses by providing up-to-date, industry-relevant training," said MSME Minister Kalraj Mishra.
"This innovative collaboration with Samsung will help youth learn to develop digital content for next-generation ecosystems. As MSME skill development programmes reach youth from all socio-economic strata, this program will also help bridge the digital divide," he added.
Samsung India Electronics president and CEO H.C.Hong said: "India is increasingly emerging as a key player in the development of next-generation technology ecosystems. Through the Samsung Digital Academy, we are looking to take this to the next level by creating an inclusive environment to help young India leverage the growing digital technologies market."
