Andela Day 2 BootCamp

Soft Skills

This is the cluster of personality traits that characterize one’s relationships with other people. Had a chance with Jackson Saya on the different soft skills each one should have. To mention a few is commitment and integrity. What is your motivation? Basically staying in track and picking yourself every time you fail then sail.

While your technical skills may get your foot in the door, your people skills are what open most of the doors to come. Your work ethic, your attitude, your communication skills, your emotional intelligence and a whole host of other personal attributes are the soft skills that are crucial for career success.

With these soft skills you can excel as a leader. Problem solving, delegating, motivating, and team building are all much easier if you have good soft skills. Knowing how to get along with people and displaying a positive attitude are crucial for success.

Sharing Code

First thing in the morning: how to share code. Why do we have to share code? We share code so that our Fellows can get to work on a certain code together and also help in debugging errors. And get to deliver work in time when we all are stationed at different places or states.


The key platform to share code that we used was GitHub. Why use GitHub? GitHub is essential to reuse code between projects. For many it’s a way to easily host and share their work for job applications. And for some it can be a way to find new or trending frameworks. And then there are people who want to do analytics on the code community.

Learn a few GitHub commands git status, git commit, git push to mention a few.

All I have for my fellows Andela All Females is to make the most of this BootCamp. Go Girls!! Girls Who Grind
