What you should know as an Entrepreneur

Introduction

The 21st Century, using, building and integration of software across industries are more of a necessity. If your product or solution does not require interaction with any sort of technology, then probably you are a time traveller from the 80s. Building a product or solution for this generation requires an interface with technology either for delivery, communication or production, this means that at some point your product must need technology to scale and if you are not adopting or integrating technology into what you are building then be rest assured your competitors will, it only good that you are ahead.

As a developer, what’s your most useless tool/platform? I know mine and its not facebook.

Whenever I set to start a project, I have this imaginary drafted schedule that I can finish an app in one sitting.

Let’s start. I’d go online and scaffold Angular, React, Vue, Ember and Laravel all in one folder, then I have that feeling…

Manuals are the most important documents no one read — Lot of Us.

But for most developers, documentation could be difficult to understand or too large to read.

Angular has one of the most detailed documentation I have read, the team did a great job simplifying it.

In this post, I will explain how I read and got the most out of Angular’s documentation, the pattern that helped me…

Before we start

I will like to share this story with you.

There lived a man in a small town with a very special gift. His gift, he could identify the next death to occur.

One day, the King invited this man to his palace with a plan to assassinate him. On the man’s arrival at the palace, the King confronted him “since you claim to know the time and order of everybody’s death, tell me when you will die.”

While the King signals for the assassins.

The man slowly replied that he wasn’t sure when but two days after…

TLDR: I’m about to marry a woman I don’t Love.

If you are my fiance and you are reading this, I’m sorry I’m cheating on you. Wait, it not what you think, truly it not you, it me.

Okay let’s skip the it not what you think story.

Recently, I received a call telling me that my wedding date has been fixed. So lately I am having some scary nightmares, you can call it cold feet but that’s not what this is about.

Facebook Developer Circles Abuja

Facebook Developer Circle Abuja was lunched on Saturday 4th August 2018, as much as I will like to talk about the full free plate of rice and chicken, the second-best part was the swags, the blue and the white.
