Ms. Laura Thaqi completed her studies in Computer Science and Engineering at the University for Business and Technology in Prishtina. During her studies, as a result of her high GPA, she was accepted for the academic exchange program at the University of HIG Norway-Gjovik, for one semester on game programming development. 

She successfully finished an internship at a startup company in Gjovik, which develops 2D video games.  Currently she is working as a Junior Java Developer at Asseco-See with the team of Turkey e-payment department and is part of several big projects that are actually used by the major banks in Turkey, projects released from Asseco-See Turkey.
