‘Congratulations and thank you’ - Our last beta course finshes!

“Congratulations and thank you all for all your hard work” and with that a whirlwind week coding ended for our students, and for us: the fourth, and last of our ‘beta’ week long courses.

It may have been the last in our ‘beta’ of 4 courses to test our strategy, but this was a course of firsts:

  • our first all-female group
  • the first time we taught the course on phones. You heard that correctly, all the students on this course were writing code on their phones. And thank God as it was also:
  • the first time we didn’t have electricity (a surprisingly common occurrence in Nigeria).

We were amazed at the hard work that our students have put in over the four courses and also the hard work that has been put in by Daniel from the Otukpo Tech Academy who’s been teaching the courses in Otukpo

So when we say “Congratulations and thank you all for all your hard work” we mean it from the depths of our hearts.
