The Codenonia Codecamp Series started out as an initiative to tackle the root problem of the technology gap between urban and rural regions in Nigeria, by reaching out to young ones and youths in rural regions across Nigeria, and enabling them to learn to code.

Codenonia guys came to my school in Ekiti state and changed my idea about the future.
I never used to think about computer as a tool to solve problems, and make the future how we truly want it to be.
But now I have a plan and I will work towards it. I spoke about it in my recorded interview on Youtube.
It is indeed a privilege for me to be among the ones that Codenonia have impacted, and I hope that they keep coming.

When I learnt that an organization was in our school to teach us how to build games, I was very excited. The lessons were very engaging.
We were initially taught with Scratch, and I learnt to give instructions to the computer and perform other programming concepts. Then we learnt basics of Javascript, working with integers, strings, and operators.
I would definately keep learning so that I can build my own game like Sleeping Dogs.

What amazed me about CCS in my University was the fact that it was free. I saw the poster on a wall, and immediately applied.
I became a developer learning through the 4-month series, and here’s my first ever app - built using Flutter. Currently, I work as a remote intern for The Soft Company NG, where I develop websites for clients and get good pay (as a 3rd year student). I also love teaching others programming, which is why I am presently giving back as a volunteer facilitator in Codenonia Codecamp Series and Andela Learning Community.
I now write Laravel, React JS, Flutter, and a few more.See my projects on Github.

You should see this. I am a graduate of Banking and Finance but Codenonia Codecamp Series presented to me a platform to not just learn to code, not just to volunteer to teach others the same, but to also share my work progress with the world.
The experience altogether helped brace up my skills, and heavily served as a building block for my career as a programmer.
Diving deeper, I realized that there’s just no telling how much of the world’s problems fabulous solutions could be provided to, with programming.
I am now a full stack developer at Aiiburtel Limited

Teens Follow-Up Competition

One of our major goals is keeping our learners motivated and engaged. And apart from encouraging them to share their learning journey in the community feed, our Follow-up competition has proved a great way to keep them truly motivated and engaged.
