Learn the modern way of developing Web applications this festive season for free.

If there is anything I’m passionate about nothing beats the passion to use technology to benefit fellow humans.

Since I got the opportunity to live in the generation where the world is a global community because of internet, it gifts me the privilege to learn and share. This festival season, I would like teach you about developing functional web applications using modern tools and approaches.

Take a look at the table of contents.

  1. Prerequisite
  2. Web design vs Web applications development
  3. Extending is smart!
  4. Components of a Web application.
  5. Powering web applications with WordPress
  6. The do list application

At the end of the tutorial I expect the reader to:-

  • To differentiate web design from web development.
  • To learn the different components together with their functionality in web applications.
  • To develop web applications using WordPress as an underlying framework.

Stay tuned for the next post, in which I will reveal my experiences and the requirements you need to benefit from this short but practical tutorial.

A brief wonder about Uganda’s leadership. — November 16, 2017

A brief wonder about Uganda’s leadership.

Democracy.
– A system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.
– a state governed under a system of democracy.
– control of an organization or group by the majority of its members.
 
Where is inclusion or leadership in the definitions above?
 
But it doesn’t mean we have to act deaf and blind. If you participated in the bush war using the guns, it’s unnecessary to keep fighting in modern society using words and suppression methods to the population. As young Ugandans can feel the pain and see scars that the war left, probably the catalyst to the leadership negative behavior.
 
Modernity encourages equity on top of the freedoms of speech, financial inclusion, education, inclusive leadership, share of leadership, mentor-ship, communication, health and security and protection that you promise.
 
In observation the divide between the poor, middle and rich class is increasing day by day. The fear among citizens is increasing day by day and is observed from some who vote for your leadership just for the fear of the war which could stem if you lost.
 
Is it what many of you in the army and governance of Uganda fought for? You would need to take a strategic step back and reflect, drawing from the examples of having members of parliament fighting in parliament before the nation, the expense of UGX29M on each individual parliament member to promote the change of article 102b in the constitution in a country where not even the senior public doctors and educators, earn a quarter of the equivalent. Yet the citizens pay taxes on a daily.

Our volunteer’s hurting set back!!! — November 12, 2017

Our volunteer’s hurting set back!!!

The trendy today in a country commonly known as peaceful and a pearl of Africa since the landing of the Europeans dating back 100s of years ago is the total opposite.

It is sad to accept but it’s true, the reality and what we have to find a solution for. I used to hear the so called group of angry youths going around Kampala beating innocent civilians and stealing from them what belonged to them. This were just stories on the internet until recently when 3 of my own people, one of them almost lost life to this group. The other two lost belongings such phones, laptops etc.

One of my people is a young skilled, hard working web design and volunteer aspirant who volunteered to redesign our website youinspireyou.org. Whose way of living has been made difficult by the greedy lazy group of thugs who stole two laptops from him while in a public taxi.

How did it happen?

At around 10:00am Calvin took a taxi from Bukoto heading to Kampala city center, on their way they realized there was a lot of traffic jam which prompted them to U-turn through a different route.

He recalls, being requested to properly close the door closest to him. Then a lot of things happened in this short period of time.

Upon noticing disappearance of the bag were the laptops, that’s when he was sent out of the taxi.

What does this mean?

  • Reporting the case to police won’t really help because so many people have lost their belongings in a similar or worse process but no help has been offered to them besides spending some amounts of money to police.
  • We have to take it and agree that Calvin won’t be able to earning a living until after several months.
  • The development of youinspireyou.org website will pause until further notice. Meaning the arrangement of our community technology skills program( Mobile Digital Hub) has been dented/negatively affected since one of the most active volunteers has no means of contributing anymore.
  • Most importantly is to replace the laptops, therefore we have to raise above $1200 and replace the two laptops.

How do you handle such cases in your location?
