Getting ready to release to Public Beta


Some members of our team visited Zim Code this weekend to see the great work that they are doing teaching high school students to code. We could not help but feel a bit of nostalgia being in a room full of people eager to develop and people so passionate about advancing the growth of the developer community in the country so we remembered the night of the Hackfest....
..and exploring the possibility of having another hackathon invitational ourselves too.

Ideas on how to get people to connect on a deeper level have been something that we have been playing with for a while. We have from time to time explored concepts to get people to share more and engage more.

Now we will begin to share the ideas that we have had so far with the community and improve on them. Our journey started at Pitch Night when we tested the first public beta of our new platform. We will be improving on it and previewing it at the next available opportunity

We are calling it... Dialogue

Our Story : How it all started

Our story starts in a room in the basement, where a group of young people sought to start businesses that would change the country and eventually with the right determination, the continent. A community of young and vibrant young people who have ideas that they feel will disrupt the way local business conduct their everyday processes.

From the earliest days, the lack of skill in our small community to develop world class software became more and more obvious. Ideas requiring technical knowledge far outweighed the developers who could build them. Technology was an essential part of our delivering some of the small ideas that would impact our communities in a huge way.

In that small community a developer community formed and using our individual strength we began to upskill each other and continually and consistently became better. We learnt that there was strength in numbers that our combined efforts to better ourselves was greater that the sum of our individual effort. From then we have never looked back and continue in our mission to equip and empower as many developers as possible to contribute to their teams and to start then grow meaningful business.

Over time, one belief has become a fundamental to the way we work: We are only as good as how much we learn and how we implement what we know to solve problem and solve challenges that the people around us encounter everyday. We realise that we only become valuable in our societies if we have the audacity to learn and build.
