Re: Attending Picademy USA

Great to read this thread.

I'm really looking forward to meeting our first US Picademy cohort at the end of the month.

The team has got a brilliant programme lined up for you and I know we're going to learn a huge amount from everyone involved.

See you soon.

Re: Pi Academy in Malaysia

Picademy is currently only available in the UK and US.
