Sydney-based Navigate Startup House has teamed up with the Nova Scotia Department of Labour & Advanced Education to create work experience for a team of junior software developers in Cape Breton.

The team is developing innovative business ideas at the ATOM Software Studio. The pilot program currently employs four young programmers, supervised by professional developers, in a hybrid software development and training environment.

“The scarcity of application developers locally limits the growth potential of many local technology entrepreneurs. Having this resource opens up many opportunities for local businesses that need programming services,” said Todd Graham, Operations Manager of Navigate Startup House, in a statement.
