Q&A

Peak IT is organized by AgileHub (www.agilehub.ro, https://www.facebook.com/agilehub/, https://www.linkedin.com/company/13054692/) - a NGO whose mission is to offer free education in IT for both adults and children.

AgileHub means free education for people of all ages. The NGO was created in 2013 with a mission of offering free education in IT and non-IT related fields for adults and children. All of our technical, productivity and self-development programs are free of charge for everybody!
We offer trainings, workshops, meetups - all free of charge! They are organized by and with the help of our trainers - members of AgileHub or good friends and partners - that are IT specialists with a practical experience.

AgileHub means:
 ● 200+ training sessions and workshops (4-16 hours long)
 ● 6 medium term courses (8 - 16 weeks long)
 ● 3 long-term children's programs (Dash & Dot and 3D printing, Build your own robot) and learning basic programming with Arcade
● 1 charity event
 ● 4 Peak IT conferences (Conferences free of charge for all of the participants - made possible with the help of our sponsors)

When we started this event, in 2018, we wanted to create a place for Brasov’s IT community to meet. We wanted PeakIT to be an event where the community could find common interests, new useful information, share what they know and find easier ways to learn from each other.

Since then, we have decided to expand our community with the help of the almighty online world and reach out to IT specialists and beginners all over the country!
Therefore, the following points have represented our mission - and still do nowadays:
 ● Visibility for our volunteers
The best way to lead is by example and the entire value of AgileHub is given by its volunteers. This is why our volunteers deserve an event where they are more visible and can become an example for others, to inspire and motivate people to join us, to contribute and grow this community together.
 ● Grow the IT community in order to create more opportunities in the city
 ● Create an opportunity for companies to meet, and also meet the people, ecnouraging them to fund our mission for free IT education.

PeakIT trainers used to mean just AgileHub volunteers. But because our mission is to always improve and expand our curriculum, now we are also welcoming IT specialists that haven't joined AgileHub (yet). These specialists can talk about and use their hands-on expertise to offer the participants all the tools they need to stay updated with certain topics - topics of great importance in the modern world.
We usually choose the speakers by following the latest trends and newest technologies in the IT field, thus contacting people with a great experience that have already made a name for themselves in the IT community.
If you want to join the future editions of PeakIT or even AgileHub, in order to help us organize more frequent workshops, drop us a message using the contact form below!

How does AgileHub manage their funds?

We strongly believe that a NGO’s purpose is to invest all the funding in offering useful programs to its target groups.

 

This is why we invest the raised funds in organizing useful and impactful programs for adults and children. We aim to offer free of charge programs to all of our participants.

 

For example, we organize one-day technical trainings that focus on specific subjects, but also longer programs that take place for 8 to 12 weeks, such as “In-depth React by example”, “First steps in programming for children”, “Security Fundamentals”.
