“Not everyone has an opportunity or the need to go to college and study computer science. But there are many people who have the potential to become software engineers with the right training, nurturing, and support. There are industry programs running like CapaCiti that take people straight from high school who are interested in software development. These young talents have the aptitude, attitude and the aspiration to become software engineers. I met a number of these amazing people and that’s when I thought about creating a program that facilitates a journey of learnership, internship, and apprenticeship, to nurture these young talents to reach their fullest potential and become aspiring software engineers.”
