Playing Catchup

Written by Mfawa Alfred Onen on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Hey everyone, so I have been very distracted with work and other activities that has hindered me from posting anything new on my blog since December of 2014. I am very much active for those of you wondering, I have just been re-arranging a few things. A lot has also happened including a featured interview with Daily Trust, Consulting for a Startup in Israel where I helped Integrate Openshift with Microsoft .NET environment and much more.

To kickstart 2015 (I know we are already in May 2015), I will be adding a few contents that will for the most part be new and some an update to some videos I must have made in the past like on RadiusDesk, Openshift, OpenStack, CentOS 7, Docker and Containers, Polymer and Web Components, Laravel (PHP), MongoDB and GDG to name a few. This has been my major areas of interest lately and expect a lot.

As a GDG lead for Bingham University, I also help maintain the website and tech events. In fact, in June, we will be having a Google I/O Extended event where we replay the Keynote from Google I/O and have a bunch of tech talks and Code Labs.

I will be coming back with more/frequent post about what my experiences are including future projects.

GDays Nigeria 2014

So GDays 2014 finally happened. It was amazing seeing all the energy and enthusiasm coming out from the developers and attendees. Femi Taiwo and his crew did a great job at ensuring the event was a success and I will like to thank them for the opportunity given to me to present and share technology bits with other GDGs out there. A big shout out also goes to Emeka Afigbo & Ayodele Marcus for pushing and supporting the GDG community towards achieving great success. I will like to thank all GDGs that attended and all participants who made the event awesome. For me, it was a great way to end the year, 2014.

This is just the beginning for the future of development in Nigeria and as a community, we need to keep supporting each other and ensuring that our GDGs continue to inspire and mentor young and talented programmers and technology enthusiasts who always has miriad of ideas or ways to solve problems.

I am looking forward to the next GDays and expect even better awesomeness as we continue to develop and build our GDG communities.
