Leading software solutions provider Vatebra equipped youthful tech buffs with hands-on software development and programming training at the maiden edition of its CODIFY meet-up held in Lagos recently.
CODIFY is an initiative of Vatebra Academy, set up to bridge the technical skill gap in innovation technologies. It is also poised to revolutionize the IT industry by providing first-class pre and post-graduate technology-training, which will have a positive impact in the Information Technology space and the business environment in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Topics critically discussed at the training session included Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Machine Learning, Intelligent Apps, Intelligent Things, and Virtual & Augmented Reality, among others.
The MD/CEO of Vatebra Limited, Mr. Kunle Akinniran, enjoined participants to lead from the front as the technology industry is in need of brilliant youths with out-of-the box ideas that would transform Africa.
He said: “The demand for coding skills is skyrocketing, and not just for developers. Programming is playing a bigger role in every career path. Technological innovations in Nigeria and perhaps Africa in recent times have burgeoned in leaps and bounds.”
At the peak of the event, graduates of the Vatebra Academy received certificates of achievement, presented to them by the Deputy Managing Director of Vatebra Limited, Mr. Mike Aigbe.
Vatebra Academy teaches students several in-demand programming languages.
