MS: Tell us about your path to Moringa School

Joined with a bit of skill set but from day one HTML and CSS  it has been a straight learning curve with each day learning and gaining a new skill set, moreover Moringa surprised me with their  commitment to you as a person by offering tap outs, one on one sessions and Friday parties. I’ve been developing holistically and what I am left with is a bag of skills that I am spoilt for choice

MS: Why Moringa School?

I was drawn to Moringa School because it’s not like a regular school or tertiary institution, what it offers is not a paper to show at the end of the day, what it offers is a skill something that developers need. For any serious developer out there it’s the place to be.

MS: What are you looking to achieve at the end of the program?

Am looking forward to achieve a skill set to  develop enterprise applications with a global scope and standards.  

MS: Tell us about a typical day at Moringa School

A day for me starts at  4a.m with a recap of concepts I had studied the previous day, it then proceeds with studying a high-level language such as C or C++ or C# to try to improve on my data structures and algorithms. The day proceeds on with normal classes. Then at the end I dedicate two hours to learning something new, then the rest normally from 10pm to around 2am I build applications

MS: Is there anything you’d like to build at the end of your time at Moringa School?

I’d like to build a clone of AWS that offers context in terms of the Kenyan market.

MS: What’s the most fun thing that has happened to you at Moringa School so far?

I finally found friends who understand my jokes.

MS: What would you tell anyone looking to apply at Moringa School?

Moringa school is not a regular college if you want to be among the best, it’s a must join.

MS: Parting shots:

I wish this could last like 4 years or something, I was just beginning to get the hang of it….. Ride of my life!
