Of course, if one thing Apple has, it is certainly its globality. It designs in California, manufactures primarily in Asia, but sells throughout the world. And the same thing sets up an academy for future developers in South Korea, and the next, in Saudi Arabia.
The first academy of its kind that Apple created was in Brazil. Several have followed in the US, and the last to be built was in South Korea. The next will be in Riad. When they set up a fence around my town, I’ll still sign up …
Apple just announced another step in international expansion in its Developer Academy program. After opening a new academy in South Korea earlier this year, the company will build the first headquarters in Apple Developer Academy in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.
The news has been confirmed by the local newspaper Saudi Gazette, which explains that Riyadh will be the first city in the Middle East to have an Apple Developer Academy institution. The Minister of Communications and Information Technology Abdullah Al-Swaha She said that, initially, the program will focus on supporting the inclusion of women in the fields of technology and design.
Abdullah Al-Swaha thanked the Apple Developer Academy for choosing Saudi Arabia to be the first country in the MENA region to host a global Apple programming and development academy.
Apple will bring the program to Saudi Arabia through a partnership with the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming and Drones (SAFCSP) through the Tuwaiq Academy and Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University.
It has not transpired by any of the parties when they will plan the inauguration of said educational center, but it is most likely that it will be for the middle next year.
