What Patience and Passion Can Pay You

Hello! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a great weekend – unless you have already crossed into Monday! Today I was expecting to visit a local zoo but it didn’t happen due to unavoidable circumstances – meaning you will not see cute lions and chimps until I visit them soon. Right now though, I want to say something about patience and Passion. 

how to succeed in life after failing

More often that not, I ask myself questions about life. The common whys and ifs. I believe most of us do. When will I succeed? Then even more: How many times must I fail? Why are my plans looking good at first and yet they never bear any fruit in the end?

Is Microsoft Winning In Kenya or Not?

Apparently Microsoft and Kenya are great friends. The other day, I stumbled upon a news article talking about a meeting between Microsoft’s Global President ( Mr. Jean-Philippe Courtois) and the president of Kenya (Uhuru Kenyatta). What were they talking about? Computers in grade schools (or as they normally call it – primary schools). Every computer needs software and this time, Microsoft appears to be looking at the big picture. Perhaps we can now ask ourselves this question: where is Google? Or maybe not!

Are You Interested In Weekend Hangouts For Coders?

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Have you ever wanted to participate in live hangouts with coders?. If that sounds like you, let me share with you an idea I just thought about: Google+ Hangouts on The Weekends (Saturday) for coders(beginners and experts alike)!

Important Skills Self-taught Programmers Might Need

Hello there. Thank you for stopping by. Many people today are self-taught programmers in the software industry and that is quite commendable. Some however,  still view the idea of a college education rewarding in the computer science field in particular while some don’t agree. The fact is, going to college doesn’t guarantee you the skills you need to succeed just as being self-taught doesn’t.

After 15 Hours of Ruby and Ruby on Rails

Hello! Three days ago, I spent two hours each learning Ruby through Lynda dot com. This was not necessarily my first encounter with Ruby but I will say that it was the first serious attempt at learning to program in it. One thing that I did a month ago was to go through the highly recommended Ruby on Rails online book (approx 8 hours). This post will describe briefly what I thought. Let us get started.

Perhaps it might be of help(to those who might not know) to mention the fact that Ruby on Rails is NOT Ruby. Instead, Ruby on Rails (commonly written as RoR) is a Framework written in Ruby language.

I Seriously Need Your Opinion On This One

Hi! Starting last week, I have been working on a project that I believe could change the way new beginners learn the whole craft of software development. I made a video and posted it on YouTube and one guy who watched it asked me why I posted it instead of keeping it secret. I believe this is not meant to be a secret. Today however, I am kindly coming to you for opinions on my landing page. Please take a minute and tell me what you think could be kept, changed, or removed from this page. They say if you ask a question, you become stupid for only five minutes. If you don’t ask, you remain stupid forever. So, here it is:
