Surabaya, 9 September 2022 – Lintasarta as a company engaged in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Total Solutions officially launched the Lintasarta Cloudeka Digischool CSR program on Friday, 9 September 2022 in Surabaya in collaboration with Dicoding as a forum for developing the developer ecosystem in Indonesia. The launch was attended by the Head of Security and Information Technology Infrastructure of the Surabaya City Communication & Information Office, Tri Aji Nugroho. Lintasarta Cloudeka Digischool’s CSR program presents a free global certified curriculum from Google for thousands of people who have an interest in the digital field, in order to support the acceleration of digital transformation in Surabaya and various other cities.

Lintasarta’s President Director, Arya Damar, said that digital skills are one of the main assets for the country’s recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic. “In the future, various sectors will increase the number of activities in the digital realm. We launched the Lintasarta Cloudeka Digischool CSR program to encourage the distribution of digital skills in society to meet the needs of sectors that are starting to digitally transform. Therefore, the City of Surabaya as one of the largest industrial cities in Indonesia, we believe is very suitable to be one of the pilot cities as well as the driving force of digital transformation in Indonesia,” he said.

Lintasarta Cloudeka Digischool’s CSR program has been running since 2020 and has succeeded in attracting more than 20,000 registrants from the general public. Officially certified by Google, this program contains a series of free modules that combine theory and practice. This year, the module offered is a preparation module to become a full-stack developer with front-end and back-end capabilities. The curriculum, which is targeted to be completed for half a year, is expected to provide more value for participants who want to enter the technology, informatics, and digital sectors.

Lintasarta’s General Manager of Corporate Secretary, Ade Kurniawan, said that this year is the first time the Digischool program has partnered with one of Lintasarta’s flagship product lines, namely Cloudeka. “Seeing the high interest from registrants every year, this year we are strengthening our teaching resources and the quality of our modules by collaborating with the Cloudeka team. We hope that by improving the quality of the modules, this program can further support the Government, industry, and the people of Surabaya to bring out local talents who are capable in the digital field,” he said.

Meanwhile, Narenda Wicaksono as CEO of Dicoding also emphasized that seeing the increasing need for talent in the digital field, this year Lintasarta Cloudeka Digischool’s CSR program expanded the program’s target audience. If previously the program only targeted individuals at the elementary and middle levels, this year individuals at the advanced level can also become program participants. “Since 2020, we have received an overwhelming response from our fellow participants regarding the Google-certified modules and training provided. For this reason, this year we add individuals at the advanced level as target participants and provide additional rewards for participants. There is free access for the top 20 participants and an Asus Intel core 13 laptop for the two best participants which will be announced at the end of the training. We are optimistic that with the increasing interest and need for digital skills, our graduates will have competitiveness that is not inferior to other talents on an international scale,” he concluded.
