As part of its vision to get one million fingers coding by 2017, Aiki
Nigeria stepped up its training on coding and entrepreneurship with a
master class which took place on 18 and 19 August, 2016 at the Microsoft
office in Lagos.

Aiki Nigeria and its development partners has, since inception, reached
over 60,000 youth in training and mentorship sessions (online and
offline) such as entrepreneurship, basic ICT, human resources and more.
The online portal which aggregates opportunities and provides
mentorship, maintains high level partnerships with international
e-learning platforms like Allison, Udemy, and Jobberman.

Technology has played a role in raising income and driving employment
opportunities in developing countries, and there is a huge demand for IT
programmers in a rapidly growing economy.

“In line with Microsoft’s mission to empower every person and every
organization on the planet to achieve more, Microsoft aims to enable
entrepreneurs take ideas to market by providing the right tools and
mentorship,” said Sola Amusan, Philanthropies Lead, Microsoft Nigeria.
“In our journey to create a sustainable ecosystem of cloud driven SMEs,
we are making a long-term commitment to seeing youth-owned companies
using technology to do business better, scale more quickly, create
value, and grow the economy.”

The ‘Code2Earn’ workshop has gone across several states in Nigeria

    I am Computer Science graduate that loves programming but have few knowledge about programming language due to limited exposure. This platform i believe will help me get the right exposure. I will love to be a part of this as i believe will go a long way to affect my career positively.

    I am a computer Science graduate. My exposure to few programming languages made me develop this passion for writing code but my little exposure has limited me. I believe this platform will go a long way to affect my career positively. I love coding.
