Amaizu Melody is a Nigerian software developer who aspires to make a significant influence on the tech industry by bringing people together and preparing them for opportunities.
He was featured on Techpoint Africa after his team (Team Excess) won the Hackvote Hackathon by Startup South in 2018, came out as a runner in a global hackathon hosted by OneHackathon in 2020, and was honoured as a runner-up in the Facebook Testathon 2019.
Over the years, he has coached and instructed software development in national meetings and programmes, and he co-facilitated at the Google Devfest Event hosted in South-South Nigeria, also served as a mentor for beginners in the Andela Learners Community.
Because he is concerned about making a credible impact in the field of technology, He decided to embark on this journey of introducing up to 1000 Africans to the world of technology via Fullstack development.
Amaizu Melody currently works as a software engineer at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Northwestern Switzerland. His greatest aspiration was to push innovation in Africa, which is why he wanted to acquire the necessary knowledge.
He believes that if we could educate people or make available the technological capabilities required to move Africa out of the third world, the time required to bring next-level technological development to the continent would be shortened.
Every economic sector is becoming increasingly dependent on software for growth; even an artificially intelligent system is irrelevant without operational software. Imagine the number of ideas that could result if at least 10 to 20 per cent of young Africans understand and are able to develop software.
The goal of the Full Stack Web Developer program is to equip learners with the unique skills they need to build database-backed APIs and web applications.
A graduate of this program will be able to:
- Design and build a database for a software application.
- Learn How to Use Version Control Systems(Git and Github)
- Create and deploy a database-backed web API (Application Programming Interface).
- Secure and manage user authentication and access control for an application backend.
- Deploy a Springboot-based web application to the cloud using Docker and Kubernetes.
- Classes on career development and job readiness.
This program includes up to 5 main courses and 4+ projects. Each project you build will be an opportunity to apply what you’ve learned in the lessons and demonstrate to potential employers that you have practical full-stack development skills.
The duration of the course would be six months, with students committing an average of five to ten hours per week.
In other words, he won’t be trying to speed through it. It is important to him that as many people as possible benefit from this course. Therefore, he proposes extending the time allotted for it so that students can take their time learning the material and go back for clarification or additional information if they need it.
Anyone with access to a laptop and some learning materials can participate in this program; programming experience is not required.
Although self-paced learning is fantastic, it still leaves an opportunity for an inky bit of unseriousness and procrastination, so he would be applying a hybrid learning style which is live and pre-recorded course content. The live courses will simulate a classroom setting in which students may interact with a teacher in real-time, receiving immediate feedback on their questions and being shown how to complete exercises before being given access to the edited version.
If you miss a live session, don’t worry. You can also view a clean recording of the session once it has been uploaded.
