The Limehouse Project

The seeds of AppsCluster Academy’s vision and ethos was influenced immensely by the Limehouse Project. Abdul Hamid, Dennis Twomey and Hassan Hoque all met through their work at the Limehouse Project. Our first meetings on the Mobile Application Development Course took place at the Limehouse Project, with significant assistance and time from Asma Nahar and Angela Chan from the Limehouse Project Training and Development Team.
