Introducing Walter Code Medium

Our education is the only thing that we can keep at all times. We, at Walter Code, have accepted this as a fact, and have developed to fit that thought into our work. That’s why you’re reading this article. We are living in a time where the industry is fast-evolving, trends are quickly changing and the need for constant increase in knowledge is a necessity and not a luxury.

Our goal with this Medium is to provide a platform to make access to new, and relevant information and tips from the IT industry, easier.

And we’ll start with:
