5 Day PD Program at Telstra Labs
Readify offers a Professional Development program which allows 20 days in a year to learn a new skill or build anything of interest to us. As a part of that I wanted to understand the process of developing an idea into a viable product.
Problem : Its quite hard to go to pharmacy to get your prescription medications if you are ill or you are caring for someone who is ill or you live in a remote area.
