Step by step, little by little, by freely organising 3-4 months coding bootcamps and bi-weekly developer workshops for young ones and youths in rural areas, we will successfully equip Africa's less opportuned with software developer skills to be equally viable in this present age.
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 Web developer
learning through the 4-month series. Here's my first website.
As at now, I develop websites for clients and get good pay (as a 2nd 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.
Upon the realization of the possibilities of programming for solving
problems, which sparked my passion for coding as an undergraduate, Codenonia Codecamp Series
presented to me a platform to learn to code and volunteer to teach others the same.
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, with programming. I, therefore, have determined to choose this path as a career deviating from my course of study (Banking and Finance). I am now a full stack developer at Tech Advance.
