By Cornellius Ngondo, Moringa School Student
Hi, my name is Cornellius Ngondo, former student at Multimedia University, a developer by calling and a mathematical genius(..or not). Three things I love in this world: code, cars and canned soda and this being my very first blog post I’m going to let you in on the first one only.
When I first heard of it I was like “I am not a biologist! I’m a developer!” until I made a quick peek on their website. You have heard that it was said ‘Never judge a book by its cover’ but I say ‘Judge a developers’ school by their website’. It was love at first sight and a deep conviction whispered to my heart “Dude! You need to be here!” I spent four years in campus taking a bachelors in mathematics and computer science and trust me writing a single line of code was like telling me to climb Mt. Everest on a t-shirt! i was an academia but when I first entered Moringa School I realized what I had missed all my years. It was right there.
See those years you spent on campus? scratch that! MS is nothing like that. If you think MS is a walk in the park, you’re wrong! This is a race on a F1 track only with supercharged V10s at the starting line. You’ll feel the heat from day 1. See, universities tell you “Read, read, read!” but MS tells you “Do, do, do!”. This is boot camp for coders, a pilgrimage for developers with untapped potential. There are so many “Google coders” out there and trust me they’ll disappoint you at one point in time. Fashioned with brilliant instructors, this 12-week curriculum is not your usual program. It’ll change your life and in addition your perspective to programming as a whole.
Let me give you another reason of why MS. The world is going nano. By nano I mean small. Developers are working so hard to maximize speed, accuracy and efficiency but at the same time minimize space and that’s why mobile technology is one of the fastest growing industries in the tech world. In the near future, your phone will be capable of amazing things and I want to be part of that growth.
Last word on Friday
Two weeks down the line and there’s one word that still fuels my engine: passion. You have to know what you want when you come here. Have pre-defined goals that you wish to achieve and also the hunger to grow in knowledge and skills.
One word that describes Moringa School: Brilliant. This is what this country needs if we are going to have a Silicon Valley.
