Gearing up for Snake Charming

Gearing up for Snake Charming
After much deliberation on what programming language will be best to adopt for freshmen in computer science department, we finally agreed to use the easy to learn and really flexible Python programming language. The goal of this course is to serve as a foundation that will build the students problem solving skills not just through code but also through their thought process (Algorithms in mind) and python makes this really easy.

Besides being an easy to learn language Python has proved to be very efficient in the technology industry as big companies like Google and Microsoft use and support them. I will be tending to peculiar problems here as well as posting as much tutorials as possible. 
So stop looking pretty, lets install python and get to coding.

North Central DevFest

As the year runs out GDG's (Google Developer Groups) in Nigeria not sure about other locations organise a developer festival which is shortened to DevFest, the festival is organised by Google Developer Groups within the same region in Nigeria, it is a fun, colourful and informative event. As a developer we tend to sit in the comfort of our work space writing code or hacking our way to a solution, we often forget to socialise or go out to enjoy the beauty of nature, one major reason being Topic of Discussion, as a developer I find everyday small talk rather time consuming and not as entertaining as funny videos on youtube, the beauty of the online world is you can entertain yourself the way you want. practice self control.

DevFest gives us the chance to mingle with like minded tech enthusiasts and creates a developer friendly environment for tech heads to share, learn, entertain and engage.
